Background

Picture

I am the Director of Engineering at Limbix Health, a startup creating Immersive Technologies for Mental Healthcare.

At Google, I was a Senior Engineer focusing on "Teleportation", designing cameras and algorithms, and producing high-fidelity experiences with the Street View and Virtual Reality teams.

I completed a Ph.D. at Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Institute, focusing on Computer Vision and Machine Learning.

I am fortunate to have been advised by Martial Hebert at CMU, and Robert Pless at Washington University in St. Louis. (academic ancestry)

Before focusing on computer vision and machine learning, I interned and then consulted at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, NJ and Bangalore, India. At Bell Labs, I worked on various projects involving new methods for mobile content delivery and network optimization.
