You've come to the right place if you want to know, at a glance, what kind of person Leiming is.
Who is Leiming?
I'm currently a software engineer in the Conversational Machines group, IBM T.J.Watson research center, New York. I obtained my Ph.D degree from the ECE department, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2001. I was born in P. R. China in 1973, and after almost twenty years of education, the end is finally in sight. It's time for me to find out whether or not all the things I've learned are truly useful and beneficial to other people.
What about his family?
I'm the only son of my parents, who live in China right now. I have a lovely wife named Qi Zhao, who is a system analyst in Hatch Medical Center, Columbia University. Previously she worked for GE Global Research in Albany.
What does he like?
I'm in the digital signal processing area, specializing in image and video compression and transmission over networks. One of my biggest obsession is computer programming. In my spare time I also paint traditional Chinese pictures, compose, practice calligraphy, and kick-boxing. Please check out my interests page for more.
What's his motto?
Responsibility comes before everything else, don't make promises easily but always keep those you made, hold on to your belief and principles, hard work is the only way of getting you anywhere. The best way to avoid indulging in something is to destory that thing.
