   My collaborators and I won best demonstration at computer vision and pattern recognition (CVPR) 2007 for "Real Time 3D Reconstruction of Urban Environments."

September 2008- Present

I am working on real-time visual simulataneous localization and mapping for Honda's Asimo robot.  We have created a system that can map a small, single floor office building in real time and are working to extend the system to larger environments.

January 2007- September 2008

I worked on the Video Analysis and Content Extraction project funded by the Disruptive Technology Office.  My work in this project was on robust techniques for structure from motion.

June 2005 - December 2006

I worked for Marc Pollefeys on the Urbanscape project. The goal of this project was to produce a computer vision pipeline that can reconstruct 3D models from video at near real-time speed.  I developed a Kalman filter based system for estimating the geo-location of 3D models fusing vision and other sensor data, including GPS and INS.
