About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Virginia Tech. I lead the Computer Vision Lab here. Previously, I was a Research Assistant Professor at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC), a philanthropically endowed computer science academic institute on the University of Chicago campus. I received my Ph.D. and MS. from Carnegie Mellon University in 2009 and 2007 respectively. My advisor was Prof. Tsuhan Chen (now at Cornell University). I got my BS, also in ECE, at Rowan University in 2005, where I worked with Dr. Robi Polikar on several pattern recognition problems.

   

I've spent several months at:
