Shuran Song

I am an assistant professor in computer science department at Columbia University. My research focuses on computer vision and robotics. I’m interested in developing algorithms that enable intelligent systems to learn from their interactions with the physical world, and autonomously acquire the perception and manipulation skills necessary to execute complex tasks and assist people.

Prospective Students: current students at Columbia, please fill out this form. PhD applicants, please apply directly to the PhD program and select my name in your application.
