I am a research scientist at Intel Labs Seattle. I am currently part of the RGB-D research team that is working on solving computer vision in everyday life settings and applications using RGB-D (color+depth, a.k.a. Kinect style) cameras, ranging from 3D mapping and modeling to everyday object recognition. (Current CV).

I am interested in all aspects of computer vision, as I believe all are needed to solve it. I have worked on many vision problems including local descriptors, boundary detection, image segmentation, figure-ground grouping, object and pose recognition, human body detection and pose estimation, object segmentation and tracking, optical flow, and 3D reconstruction. Recently, I have had opportunities to work on vision-related problems in robotics and human-computer interaction.

I joined Intel Labs Seattle in 2008. Prior to Seattle, I was a research assistant professor at the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTI-C). I received my Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in 2006, under the supervision of Jitendra Malik.
