PROFESSIONAL WORK EXPERIENCE

Research Assistant
Multimedia Lab, SFU, Sept 2018 - Apr 2020

I joined this lab as a Master student since 2018 and mainly worked on the visually guided beamforming system.

Master thesis: Visually-guided beamforming for a circular microphone array

  • Generated fisheye datasets (Wider-360, and VOC-360) for object detection and segmentation in fisheye images, re-trained two face detectors with transfer learning for FDDB360 and Wider-360 in Matlab with GPU, applied k-fold cross-validation to choose the best model
  • Proposed a new beamformer MVDR-2C, simulated and implemented different beamformers based on a circular microphone array
  • Developed a visually guided beamforming system by combining the 360° camera with a circular microphone array, used beamforming technology to enhance speech from the specific direction while suppressing noise and interference

Undergraduate Research Assistant
Multimedia Lab, SFU, May 2017 - Aug 2018

I started this research assistant position as my second co-op term from Summer 2017. My job initially was dealing with computer vision including facial recognition, and later on I switched to acoustic part. I worked with my professor Ivan Bajic and Rodney Vanghan, and two another PhD students Alejandro Silva and Chris. During the Fall term, professor Bonnie Gray and one more PhD student Elham Ideli involved in our project.

  • Calibrated Raspberry Pi camera with OpenCV, created a real-time facial landmark detection project with Dlib, OpenCV and Python on Mac and Raspberry Pi
  • Recorded audio clips in an acoustic chamber, measured phase shift and magnitude difference among 8 microphones on Matrix Creator, developed small programs on Matrix Creator with Raspberry Pi
  • Derived a fisheye face detection dataset FDDB360 with various image processing skills, including interpolation, extrapolation, inpainting, and radial distortion (mapping standard undistorted images into fisheye images)

Teaching Assistant
SFU, Aug 2018 - Aug 2019

  • Fundamentals of Digital Logic and Design (ENSC252)
  • Multimedia Communications Engineering (ENSC424)
Supervised classes of 30-50 students, provided explicit support and feedback on individual assignments and group projects related to image/video coding, machine learning, and VHDL

Software Test Specialist
IBM, Victoria, B.C., Jan – Apr 2016

  • Created and maintained effective test plans for assigned features, tested client-server applications running over wired and wireless networks on Windows, Android, MacOS, and iOS platforms
  • Conducted test reporting and collaborated with Scrum team (testing and development team) to make sure the required test scenarios are covered for product release, and leveraged test results to help improve the existing plan
