As a grad student, always pushing the edge of what is possible, improving the best available, and accomplishing the previously impossible is what drives me. I love a good research challenge. My interests lie in robotics, computer vision, control systems, medical instrumentation, face recognition, vision-based control, biomedical modeling, real-time algorithms, and large-scale data mining. Some of my research projects include microsurgical tools for retinal surgery, web-scale face recognition, autonomous ground vehicles, and other cool homework projects:
