I recently finished a Ph.D. at UCLA, where I worked with Prof. Stefano Soatto in the UCLA Vision Lab. My interests involve understanding how to discover, identify, and accurately track objects in video. For a couple of summers, I had the opportunity to dabble in text detection at Facebook.
Prior to UCLA, I obtained my B.S. from UC Berkeley, where I studied occlusion detection and put together hand-tracking experiments in Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy's Teleimmersion Lab.

Causal Video Object Segmentation from Persistence of Occlusions
In CVPR 2015 (oral).
We exploit occlusions to discover salient objects in video and reliably track them when occlusion cues fail.
