My research focuses on computer vision and machine perception. I'm interested in understanding the world from visual information, including understanding events, scenes and activities, detecting and tracking people, as well as object detection and segmentation. I'm also interested in exploring how systems can use and improve their understanding by interacting with the world and by being user-focused. This has driven my work in robotics and human-robot interaction.
I'm currently a Senior Research Scientist at Google, Inc.
Previously I was a Research Scientist at Willow Garage, Inc., a personal robotics research lab. I completed my doctoral work at The Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, and I also spent time at INRIA Rhône-Alpes.
