Cofounder, 2013 - present
Our goal at vision.ai is to make computer vision tools and technologies accessible to the whole world. Our first product, VMX, is designed to bring cutting-edge computer vision technology to: hobbyists, researchers, artists, students, roboticists, engineers, and entrepreneurs. We are currently launching a Kickstarter campaign, so please check us out at: http://kickstarter.vmx.ai
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
Postdoc, 2011 - 2013
I was a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT where I worked in Antonio Torralba's Lab on research in object detection, 3D scene reconstruction, and machine learning.
Carnegie Mellon University (CMU)
PhD Student, 2005 - 2011
I was a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute where I worked with Alexei A. Efros on research in image understanding, object recognition, image segmentation, and the machine learning techniques required to solve such large-scale problems.
Software Engineer, 2008 - 2008
I spent a summer working with Thomas Leung at Google Research in Mountain View, CA where I worked on an automatic segmentation algorithm for large-scale category-level image recognition. I gained experience working in a fast-paced software engineering environment and deploying computations using Google's MapReduce.
Software Engineer, 2009 - 2009
I spent a summer working with Dennis Strelow at Google Research in Mountain View, CA where I worked on a discriminative groups sparse coding algorithm. I gained experience working on sparse coding problems, formulating hybrid objective functions which utilize intuitions from unsupervised learning and discriminative methods, as well as decoupling such problems for deployment in a MapReduce-heavy workflow.
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Summer Intern, 2001 - 2001
I worked on a summer project at BNL's Physics Department during which I studied numerical integration routines for modeling relativistic muons inside electromagnetic storage rings.
