About Me

I am a computer science Ph.D. student at MIT. My research studies computer vision and machine learning.

I work at CSAIL where I am advised by Antonio Torralba. Previously, I was at UC Irvine advised by Deva Ramanan. I have done summer internships at Google Maps and Google X.

Thank you to Google and the NSF for supporting my research!
