Santosh Kumar Divvala

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Washington, working with Carlos Guestrin and Ali Farhadi. I received a PhD in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University in 2012, where I worked under the supervision of Martial Hebert and Alyosha Efros.

My interests are in Computer Vision, specifically the Image Understanding problem. My approach to this problem takes a Machine Learning perspective so as to leverage today's Internet-scale image databases. The results of my research apply to Robotics (helping robots better 'interpret' the world around them) & to Computational Photography (enhancing the way we humans relish our photo collections).
