I am a fifth-year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University in the Machine Learning Department. My advisor is Simon Lucey and I was previously advised by Fernando de la Torre, who moved to Facebook. My research interests primarily span the fields of machine learning and computer vision, including component analysis and representation learning. I was funded by the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship from 2013-2016.
I am currently an intern at Argo AI working on three-dimensional perception for self-driving cars. During the summer of 2015, I interned at Google Research where I worked on deep learning for computer vision with Zhen Li. As an undergraduate, I studied computer science and electrical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. While there, I participated in research advised by Robert Pless.
