PhD Student, Department of Computer Science
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


I'm a Ph.D. Student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I conduct research on problems related to Computer Vision and Natural Language Understanding. I'm advised by Prof. Tamara Berg and I also collaborate with professors Alex Berg and Yejin Choi. I was previously at Stony Brook University where I also got an MS in Computer Science. With my collaborators I was awarded the prestigious Marr Prize in Computer Vision in 2013. I'm also a recipient of a Yahoo! Key Scientific Challenges Award in 2012 and a Renaissance Technologies Fellowship (2009 - 2011)

I was recently a Research Intern at Microsoft Research New England in Cambridge, Massachusetts. During my studies I have also spent time in Silicon Valley at the eBay Research Labs Computer Vision group during the summer 2013, at Google with the Android Multimedia Content Analysis and Google Research group in the summer 2011 and in the Google Earth aerial imagery database team in 2008.
