Assistant Professor
Princeton University

Jianxiong Xiao is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University. He received his Ph.D. from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT. His research interests are in computer vision, with a focus on data-driven scene understanding. He has been motivated by the goal of building computer systems that automatically understand visual scenes, both inferring the semantics (e.g., SUN Database) and extracting 3D structure (e.g., Big Museum). His work has received the Best Student Paper Award at the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) in 2012 and Google Research Best Papers Award for 2012, and has appeared in popular press in the United States. Jianxiong was awarded the Google U.S./Canada Fellowship in Computer Vision in 2012, MIT CSW Best Research Award in 2011, and Google Research Awards in 2014.
