Intruction: In this talk, I would like to speak about how to do research targeting at senior graduate students. The purpose is to illustrate how a total stranger of computer science like me can enter this fantastic research field and how I try to make some marks for myself. The talk will be focused on my personal experiences, discussing the ups and downs, gains and losses, and most importantly the practical considerations of surviving in this tough academia world.
