Support, Preach & Practice "Computing towards Human Good".
Thank you for visiting my webpage. I am a third year PhD student at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington. My advisor is Prof. Vassilis Athitsos who runs the Vision-Learning-Mining (VLM) Research Lab. I pursue research in the areas of Computer Vision, Machine learning, Robotics, Autonomous Driving, Gesture recognition and Human-Computer-Interation. Areas of focus are: Motion estimation and tracking, Articulated Human Pose recognition, Robot-aided rehabilitation, Autonomous Driving. I also work in collaboration on ongoing projects for the Heracleia Lab which is led by Prof. Fillia Makedon.
I am currently a Research Intern at Intel Corporation where I work on developing Machine learning and Computer Vision content for IOTG Automated Driving Group and the Consumer Experience and Performance Group. Our lab in news!
