Chenhao Zheng

I am an incoming CS Ph.D. student at the University of Washington, advised by Prof. Ranjay Krishna. Before that, I was an undergraduate student at University of Michigan and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where I was fortunate to also work with Prof. Andrew Owens and Dr. Adam Harley. I work on computer vision, with a particular interest in video understanding, vision-language models, and embodied agents. In my spare time, I love musics and football (both American and European 😆). I am also a big fan of Neymar and aespa.
