SouYoung Jin

I am a postdoctoral associate at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), working with Dr. Aude Oliva. Previously I earned my PhD in College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS), University of Massachusetts, Amherst (UMass Amherst), where I researched on improving face clustering in videos under Dr. Erik Learned-Miller in the Computer Vision Lab.

My main research area is in Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Cognitive Science. My area of expertise is video understanding. Here is my CV.

I will join the Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth College as an Assistant Professor in January 2023!
