I am currently a Co-Founder at (VISION.AI, LLC). We deliver cutting-edge object detection and image recognition technology as a service. You can find more details at VMX Project: Computer Vision for Everyone @ .


From August 2011 to September 2013, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at MIT CSAIL, where I worked with Antonio Torralba. I received a PhD in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University in 2011, where I worked under the supervision of Alexei A. Efros.


My research is in the field of Computer Vision, and I am interested in image understanding, object recognition, segmentation, and the machine learning techniques required to tackle such problems. I build intelligent machines that can "see" and my research draws upon ideas from computer vision, machine learning, psychology, philosophy, and physics.
