i'm a machine learning / computer vision engineer. i received a PhD from UCSD where I was advised by serge belongie
. most of my graduate work was funded by an NSF IGERT traineeship and a 2010 google fellowship
, and revolved around weakly supervised learning and its applications to object detection, recognition and tracking; one of my algorithms is included in OpenCV 3.0
. after finishing my PhD, I started a company called anchovi labs which was acquired by dropbox
; i worked at dropbox for 2.5 years. currently i work at orbital insight
where i develop computer vision algorithms to analyze satellite imagery. oh, and if you haven't noticed already, i have no respect for capital letters.
in my spare time i play guitar, read/watch sci-fi, and occasionally blog/tweet.
