News:

  • I will be joining Adobe Research in San Francisco beginning September 2014.
  • Paper accepted to ECCV 2014.
  • Code is available for the "Seeing 3D chairs" project.
  • Code is available for the "3D Wikipedia" project.

  • Research: My research interests are primarily in computer vision. In particular, I am interested in visual scene understanding and object recognition. More recently, I am interested in (i) leveraging online text to automatically label 3D geometry, and (ii) cross-domain matching and alignment of non-photographic depictions (e.g. paintings and drawings) and historical photographs to 3D models.

    Bio: I received my Ph.D. from MIT in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in 2008 under the supervision of Professors William T. Freeman and Antonio Torralba. I was a post-doctoral fellow from 2008-2010 in the INRIA Willow team at the Département d'Informatique of Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. I was a research scientist with Intel Labs from 2012-2014 as part of the Intel Science and Technology Center for Visual Computing (ISTC-VC) and have been affiliated with the University of Washington since 2011.
