I am a computer scientist and professor interested in solving the computer vision problem: giving machines the gift of observing the world through cameras (eyes) like humans do.

In other words, interpret visual data so to turn numerical pixels into high-level semantics. I also sympathize with the slow science movement when applied to science in computer vision and machine learning.
