Xiaodan Du

I am a Ph.D. student at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC), working on computer vision and machine learning. I am fortunate to be advised by Professor Greg Shakhnarovich. My main research interests are generative models, 3D generation and editing.

Before my study at TTIC, I have received an MS degree in Computer Science, advised by Professor Svetlana Lazebnik; and a BS degree in Civil Engineering, both from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).

I am also an avid collector of 1800s to 1900s European historical and commemorative Medals. Here are a small group of my finest collections.
