Angela S. Lin

I am a second year PhD student at UT Austin, where I am co-advised by Ray Mooney and Qixing Huang.

I did my Bachelor's at the UC Berkeley, where I worked with Richard Zhang, Jun-Yan Zhu, Phil Isola, and Alyosha Efros in computer vision as well as Brandie Nonneke and Ken Goldberg in collaborative filtering.

I am interested in problems at the intersection of natural language processing and computer graphics. I am currently working on Text to Animation, a project to generate animations from text descriptions.

Generating Animated Videos of Human Activities from Natural Language Descriptions
Angela S. Lin*, Lemeng Wu*, Rodolfo Corona, Kevin Tai, Qixing Huang, and Raymond J. Mooney
Visually Grounded Interaction and Language Workshop at NeurIPS, 2018

A sequence-to-sequence model for 3D skeletal human generation from text where the animation decoder is pretrained using an autoencoder.

Real-Time User-Guided Image Colorization with Learned Deep Priors
Richard Zhang*, Jun-Yan Zhu*, Phillip Isola, Xinyang Geng, Angela S. Lin, Tianhe Yu, and Alexei A. Efros.

A network trained using simulated user interaction from ground truth colors produces surprisingly good colorization results with real human users.
