Chieh Hubert Lin
Ph.D. student at UC Merced Vision and Learning Lab



Oral presentation in ICCV 2019.

Hubert is a first year Ph.D. student in UC Merced working with Ming-Hsuan Yang. His research mainly focuses on generative modeling and some other random things. Hubert received his BS from NTHU in 2018, and worked as a research assistant for two facinating years in Vision and Science Lab in NTHU, working with Min Sun (NTHU), Hwann-Tzong Chen (NTHU), Wei-Chen Chiu (NCTU), Da-Cheng Juan (Google) and Wei Wei (Google).

At the time Hubert received his BS from NTHU, he only has an overall GPA 3.09/4.30, one publication in ECCV'18 (co-first authorship) and a full-year internship in Microsoft. With such an embarrassing record, many people conclude this student completely has no research potential. Hubert gets rejected by most of the Ph.D. programs in 2020 without any interview, despite he has published 5 papers in top-tier conferences.

"So be careful, GPA indeed examines your research potential!"
