NEWS: I have accepted an offer at the School of Interactive Computing in the CoC to join as Assistant Professor in the Fall! I am looking for students for the following areas, all of them focusing on machine/deep learning for perception:
I am currently a Senior Research Scientist at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, where I lead a group of researchers as the chief of the Machine Learning and Analytics branch. I am also Adjunct in the School of Interactive Computing and work with several faculty and Ph.D. students, as well as serve as an Associate Director of ML@GT which is the machine learning center recently created at Georgia Tech. Previously I was a Research Scientist at SRI International Sarnoff in Princeton, and before that received my Ph.D. in 2010 with Professor Ron Arkin as my advisor. My areas of research specifically focus on the intersection of learning methods for sensor processing and robotics, developing novel machine learning algorithms and formulations towards solving some of the more difficult perception problems in these areas.
