Changan Chen 陈昌安

I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UT Austin advised by Prof. Kristen Grauman. I am also a visiting researcher at Facebook AI Research. My long-term goal is to bring autonomous agents into the real world, where the agent can perceive the world and act accordingly with respect to its goal.

Previously, I spent a wonderful year working with Prof. Greg Mori on sports video analysis and efficient deep learning, eight months working with Prof. Alexandre Alahi on social navigation in crowds, and eight months working with Prof. Manolis Savva on relational graph reasoning for navigation.
