Bolin Lai

Hi! I am a third-year PhD student in the Machine Learning Program of Georgia Institute of Technology, advised by Prof. James Rehg and co-advised by Prof. Zsolt Kira. Prior to starting my PhD, I got my Master's degree majoring in ECE and Bachelor's degree majoring in Information Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I worked with Prof. Ya Zhang during my master.

I'm actively looking for a research internship opportunity in summer 2024.

I'm looking for self-motivated graduate/ungraduate students to collaborate. Don't hesitate to reach out to me if you are interested.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in Multi-Modal Learning, Video Understanding and Generative Models. Currently, I'm focusing on joint representation learning of vision and language in videos as well as image/video generation using diffusion models.
