I'm currently an applied scientist at Amazon A9. I recently graduated from University of California, Irvine with a PhD in computer science, focusing on the area of artificial intelligence and machine learning. My PhD advisor was Prof. Alexander Ihler. I also worked closely with Prof. Rina Dechter. The best way to reach me is via email.
I'm generally interested in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computer vision. My thesis work focuses on developing approximate inference algorithms for probabilistic graphical models with strong anytime guarantees, which takes advantage of ideas and techniques from variational methods, heuristic search, and Monte Carlo sampling. I've also worked on (deep) multi-instance learning, video ads analysis, semantic segmentation, etc.
