I’m currently an Applied Scientist at Amazon where I help this cute robot see the world with fast, accurate, and energy efficient computer vision. I recently graduated with a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University where I was advised by Prof Adrian Sampson.
My graduate research focused on efficient computer vision. I’ve found that abstractions can simplify the design process, but breaking down boundaries through hardware-software co-design can produce superior results. For this reason I see myself as a system creator rather than a hardware or software developer.
As an entrepreneurial engineer I quickly gravitated to both industrial and academic research. While finishing my M.S. at UMass Amherst I formed Firebrand Innovations as a way of monetizing intellectual property I developed while in high school. These days I can be found in Amazon’s robotics lab building powerful and exciting new computer vision systems.
