About Me

I'm currently a scientist at Honda Research Institute. I obtained my PhD in Summer 2012 from Computer Science Department at University of California, Los Angeles under the supervision of Dr. Stefano Soatto.

My general research interests are in computer vision and applications of geometry and machine learning in this field. I am most interested in the use of mathematical techniques coming from convex optimization, combinatorial optimization and statistical inference for the formulation of algorithms for computer vision problems such as object detection, segmentation and recognition, optical flow estimation, occlusion detection, and video super-resolution.
