Since January 2013, I have been a Research Scientist at the EECS Department at the University of California at Berkeley working with Prof. Lotfi Zadeh and Prof. Trevor Darrell. Currently I'm working on the Mind's Eye project which focuses on Activity Recognition in Videos in collaboration with Prof. Kate Saenko, Prof. Raymond Mooney and Prof. Trevor Darrell. I have also worked on the BOLT-E Project which focused on Grounded Language Acquisition in collaboration with Prof. Dan Klein, Prof. Pieter Abbell and Prof. Trevor Darrell.
My research interests lies at the intersection of Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning and it is focused on Object and Activity Recognition in Videos and on Grounded Language Acquisition. Currently, I am working on the YouTube2Text project to automatically describe short YouTube videos using different levels of generalization and web knowledge.
