I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate working with Svetlana Lazebnik at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I'm currently looking for full time positions both in industry and academia. Please explore my CV if there are openings at your institution. [CV]

I finished my PhD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in August 2013. My interests are in object recognition and scene parsing. I'm currently investigating efficient ways to take advantage of large datasets of densely labeled images.

I graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelors in Computer Engineering. I then worked for Adobe Systems in the consumer photo group. My work there included the transfer of research into the Elements consumer software product line.
