Vision and Around

Dedicated to my research and life


I’m Ju Sun, and currently a PhD student working with Prof. John Wright at Electrical Engineering, Columbia University in the City of New York. We work at the intersection of computer vision, machine learning, numerical optimization, signal/image processing, information theory, and compressive sensing, focusing on modeling, harnessing, and computing with structures in massive data, with provable guarantees and practical algorithms.
