Xiaoqian Shen 沈晓倩

Bio: I am currently a Master student of Computer Science at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology supervised by Mohamed Elhoseiny. Before that, I received BSc in Computer Science from Jilin University, China.

Research: I am excited about complex problems that can be tackled with learning-based systems. Currently, my research focuses on generative models, spatiotemporal representation and low-resource learning.
