About Me:

I am currently a software developer in the Flickr Vision team. I completed my M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. Before that, I completed my B.S. degree with honors, also at Stanford. During that time, I completed a minor in Computer Science as well.

I’m an avid table tennis player and amateur card magician. I occasionally play basketball and ultimate frisbee, too (though I’m not particularly good at either).

My passion is anything related to image processing and computer vision, though I also enjoy occasionally dabbling with topics in computer hardware and FPGAs. I am a firm believer that, with the increasing popularity of deep networks and increasingly advanced machine vision algorithms, complete image intelligence (i.e., enabling computers to view the world the way that humans do) is achievable within the next couple of decades.
