I am a PhD candidate interested in the development and application of Machine Learning algorithms to Computer Vision problems. My current projects focus on large scale detection, domain adaptation, and deep learning. I collaborate with my advisors, Trevor Darrell and Kate Saenko, as well as the the Berkeley Computer Vision group.
My undergraduate research focused on developing motion planning algorithms for Robotics in the Automation Sciences Lab at UC Berkeley with Professor Ken Goldberg. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in Spring 2010.
I love to get out of the lab and travel, hike, and generally just enjoy the outdoors. My favorite recent destinations have been Glacier National Park, Alaska, and the Swiss Alps.
