I work with Professors Ali Farhadi and Linda Shapiro on telling semantic stories from video. Previously I have worked on recipe assistance and event detection, and robotic towel folding.
I did my bachelor's at the University of California at Berkeley (go Bears!), in computer science and mathematics.
My resume is here.
- Jinna Lei, Xiaofeng Ren, Dieter Fox. "Fine-grained kitchen activity recognition using RGB-D." In Ubicomp, 2012. PDF.
- Jeremy Maitin-Shepard, Marco Cusumano-Towner, Jinna Lei, Pieter Abbeel. "Cloth grasp point detection based on multiple-view geometric cues with application to robotic towel folding." In ICRA, 2010. PDF.
- I wrote an honors math thesis on finding minimum spanning trees. PDF.
- CS 288: Natural language processing. An attempt at end-to-end translation from Russian to English. Probably the most interesting results were our Russian/English corpus and stemming algorithm. PDF.
- In 2009 and 2010 I found threads and needles using stereo vision. A writeup on some intermediate results. (With Shervin Javdani, advised by Pieter Abbeel).
