Philip Greggory Lee

I am Philip Lee, an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Ph.D. candidate under the direction of Ying Wu in the area of Computer Vision. I graduated summa cum laude from Clemson University in 2008 with a B.S. in Mathematics, concentration in Computer Science. I studied at Northwestern University since 2009 and obtained my Ph.D. in 2014.
