I am a third year PhD candidate at Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University. I am co-advised by Silvio Savarese
and Leo Guibas
. I have
collborated with James Zou
and David Tse
on various projects. My research interests lie in
Computer Vision (3D Vision in particular) and Applied Machine Learning.
