[Curriculum vitae]

I'm a Ph.D. Student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I conduct research on problems at the intersection of Computer Vision and Natural Language Understanding using insights from Linguistics and Cognitive Psychology. I am also interested on big scale visual analytics by learning models that can perform high-level perceptual tasks. 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 obtained an MS in Computer Science. I'm a recipient of the 2013 IEEE Marr Prize in Computer Vision, a 2012 Yahoo! Key Scientific Challenges Award and a Renaissance Technologies Fellowship (2009 - 2011).

During my studies I have also spent time at Microsoft Research New England, the eBay Research Labs Computer Vision group, the Google Android Multimedia Content Analysis and Google Research groups and the Google Earth satellite image analysis team.
