I received a B.A. in pure Mathematics with departmental honors from Brandeis University, Waltham MA, an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Boston University (advised by Prof. Stan Sclaroff in the IVC group). I am now a Principal Research Scientist in the Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington in Seattle. Previously I was a Senior Research Scientist in the IVC group of the Dept. of Computer Science at Boston University. Prior to that, I was a Senior Member of Technical Staff in the Video and Image Understanding group at Systems & Technology Research, and before that, a post-doctoral researcher with Prof. Pascal Fua and Prof. Vincent Lepetit in the CVLab at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). Before pursuing my Ph.D., I contributed to machine-vision research and development at Charles River Analytics, Inc., Cognex Corp., and Amerinex Applied Imaging, Inc.+ADCIS SA.
