About Research

I’ve done research under the supervision of Prof Jiaqing Huang for almost a year. But in my view, Prof Huang is indeed not a good supervisor. The reason I hold this opinion is that he always pushs me to publish papers.

It is very hard for an undergraduate student to publish papers. Without a deep understanding of a field and the support of solid result, it is almost impossible for a researcher to locate the research direction and write a excellent paper. Both solid understanding and solid result requires devotion of time.

The deadlie of GlobeCom(Mar. 15) is approaching. Prof. Huang requires me to submit a paper to this conference. However, I couldn’t spend enough time in research because of my application. Although I’ve gotten some preliminary result, I still need a large amount of literation reading to support my research.

But time is not enough. To make the matter worse, prof. Huang have little knowledge of the research field I am involved. I couldnot find a profess familiar to my field, either.

Because of this reasons, I hold little hope for this paper.

Choice

It seems that it is highly possible for me to get offers from Boston University, NTU and COSSE Program. Professor in NTU concentrates on  data mining in video and the research direction of professor in Boston is network optimization.

But I don’t know how to make a choice now. Boston University is very close to Harvard and MIT. If I go to BU, I may be able to communicate with many prominiant professors more directly. However, the professor in NTU seems to be conscientious, andin my point of view, computer vision is more prospective than network optimization.

About Imperial College and NTU

I’ve just gotten an admission From Imperial College London(IC). IC is a very good university, however, the high tuition fees and soaring living expenses make it impossible for me to accept the admission.

So I seek help from CSC, a government-funded program. I hold little hope because the result of CSC scholarship comes out in June or July. I believe I can’t wait until then.

Anothe problem comes from Nanyang Technological University. An professor from NTU has called me several times. It seems that he wants me to promise him. So I may need to make a final decision several days later.
