I am currently a graduate student at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) where I'm enrolled in the CS PhD program. I am also a member of the Computational Vision Group at UCI, where I work with Professor Charless Fowlkes.
I was previously a R&D Engineer at UtopiaCompression Corporation in Los Angeles, California where I worked on mine detection in sonar images. Prior to that in 2010, I received my B.Sc. degree from UCI majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Japanese Language and Literature.
My research interests spans multiple disciplines, from computer vision to cognitive science. Problems that I am particularly excited about are: object recognition, active learning, and scene understanding.
