Besides Dr. Ling, the lab team currently consists of 3 visiting scholars, 6 Ph.D. students, 1 M.S. student, and 3 faculty collaborators. The team meets every Thursday at 12:30 p.m. to present and discuss research. The lab is equipped with fast multi-core workstations and GPUs, as well as different software. We collaborate with 5 universities and 1 company.
