Yushi Jing  ( Kevin Jing )

I am currently at Google Cloud.  Previously I worked at Google Research (2004, 2006-11), Google.Org (2012-13) and Google Shopping Ads (2017-18).

I became the head of related recommendation / visual-search at Pinterest after the VisualGraph Acquisition (2014-17). The team was directly responsible for +40% of the overall engagement. 

I received my undergraduate and doctoral degree in computer science from Georgia Tech, spent 1.5 year in the dual M.S. statistics/ms&e program at Stanford, and worked as a visiting scholar at Tokyo University.
