I am a first year PhD student at the Georgia Institute of Technology studying computer science. I work closely with Irfan Essa, Dhruv Batra, and Devi Parkih. My research interests are primarily focused on computer vision and its applications to understanding. In particular, I am interested in working on tackling problems involving 3D perception and general scene understanding.
As an undergraduate, I participated in a 3-2 engineering program with Juniata College and WUSTL. While I was at WUSTL, I worked with Yasu Furukawa (now at SFU). I spent a summer at Lehigh University and worked with Yinzhi Cao.
Bachelor of Science, Computer Engineering, Summa Cum Laude, 2017
Washington University in St. Louis
Bachelor of Science, Engineering Physics, Magna Cum Laude, 2017
During Fall 2017, I worked on using PointNets to predict amodal 3D bounding boxes. I saw initially promising results for regressing bounding boxes coordinates. However, due to my desire to not use fixed anchors, the network had trouble determine which bounding boxes had an object.
