I am a 5th year Ph.D. student in The Robotics Institute, part of Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science. I am advised by Professor Martial Hebert (academic ancestry).

I received my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from Washington University in St. Louis, where I was advised by Dr. Robert Pless.

Prior to beginning my graduate studies, I interned and consulted at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, NJ and Bangalore, India. At Bell Labs, I worked on various projects involving novel methods for mobile content delivery and network optimization. I have also interned at Google working on Image Search and Street View.

I am a computer vision researcher, currently exploring data-driven geometry estimation problems.
