I'm a PhD student in computer science advised by Noah Snavely and Kavita Bala at Cornell University. My research focuses on building systems that analyze the massive numbers of photos found on social networking sites such as Flickr, Facebook, and Instagram to better understand changes and trends that would be difficult to identify with the naked eye alone. This work touches on several areas of computer vision such as 3D reconstruction, object recognition, and uses state-of-the-art machine learning techniques.
I grew up near a small town in Wisconsin and eventually went to the University of Michigan where I obtained BSEs in computer science engineering as well as computer engineering. When I'm not busy in the realms of vision and graphics, I enjoy using my embedded systems background to tinker with robotics. Sometimes they even do what I ask.
