Yifei Huang, PhD

Project assistant professor @ UTokyo



Hi! I’m Yifei Huang (黄逸飞), a Project Assistant Professor (特任助教) in Sato Laboratory, which is in the Institute of Industrial Science of the University of Tokyo. I am now working with Prof. Yoichi Sato under the JST CREST project, which focuses on understanding and assistance of egocentric activities using first-person cues.

I received my PhD and M.S. from Graduate School of Information Science and Technology at the University of Tokyo, supervised by Prof. Yoichi Sato, under the support of the Global Creative Leader program of the University of Tokyo. I received my B.S. in Automation in IEEE honor class of Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
