Curriculum Vitae

I completed my PhD in 2009 in the Electrical Engineering Department  at Stanford University. I graduated from Princeton University in 2002 with a Bachelor's Degree (BSE) in EE, and finished my Master's Degree (M.S.) at Stanford in 2003. My research interests are in the areas of image processing, computer vision, and artificial intelligence. My Ph.D. advisor was Daphne Koller from the Computer Science Department. For awhile at Stanford, I was supported by the Rambus Stanford Graduate Fellowship.

I'm currently a software engineer at Google. Find out more at my LinkedIn profile.

In my spare time, I develop board games. You can check out (and buy!) my first two: Tower Tycoon and Bloodlines.

My Projects

Learning Shape Models for Descriptive Classification

In this project we learn probabilistic models for object outlines than can be used to recognize and detect objects, as well as to answer a range of "descriptive" queries that go beyond mere categorization.

Learning Spatial Context

In this project we attempt to model the relationships between things (monolithic objects) and stuff (material that spreads across the image) in order to improve our detection capabilities.

Integrating Vision Models

The goal of this project is to integrate many vision models into a single system so that they can improve over the results they would achieve in isolation, through the use of contextual cues flowing between the models.
