I joined Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT in January 2013. I work as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the computer vision group, with Profs. Bill Freeman and John Fisher.

I graduated from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) with a PhD in Computer Science in December 2012. I was supervised by Prof. Yi Ma during my PhD and my dissertation was titled Optimization by Gaussian Smoothing with Application to Geometric Alignment.
Research Philosophy:

I believe Computer Vision should change to a "hard science". Below are some resources clarifying why this matters (I have highlighted some parts).
