am a second year graduate student at MIT in the Data
Group advised by John Guttag
Durand. My areas of interest
are machine learning and computer vision, with a focus on medical
applications. I am currently funded by the NSF GRFP.
Before MIT, I went to the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. There I worked with Zeeshan Syed on applying machine learning to EEG analysis. I also worked with Michael Wellman on ad auctions research.

I am interested in extracting useful physiological information from normal video recordings. I recently published a paper at CVPR about finding pulse and heartbeat durations by measuring the subtle motions of the head caused by blood flow (examples of which are shown magnified in the gif below). If you're interested, check out the project page.
