Dong Liu, PhD
Associate Research Scientist
Department of Electrical Engineering
Columbia University in the City of New York

I am an associate research scientist in DVMM lab at Columbia University. My research interests have revolved around large scale visual content analysis and retrieval. This research area investigates the use of machine learning and computer vision techniques on massive volume of images and videos, to acquire the semantics needed for visual data management, indexing, search and sharing. Over the years, my research interests have led me to pursue two different areas of research: Content-based Tag Processing for Internet Social Images and Complex Event Detection in Consumer Videos. My research has had significant impact in the above areas and has been followed extensively by other researchers. For more information about my research, please see my publication page !
