Since 2008 I have been a PhD student in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University, co-advised by Professors Marc Levoy and Sebastian Thrun.

My research interests include image/signal processing, sensors, computer vision, data mining, and machine learning.

M.S. Computer Science, Stanford, May 2011.
B.S. with high distinction, Computer Science, University of Virginia, 2008.
(I'm also a fan of UVA athletics--and even though I'm no longer a member of the track team, I still enjoy running ).

I am a recipient of NDSEG and NSF Graduate Fellowships.

I am currently on leave from Stanford, working at Facebook.

In recent years, I have interned at:

--Facebook, Photos Team, 2011
--Google Research, Computer Vision, 2010
--Lockheed Martin- Maritime Systems and Sensors, 2007, 2006
