Research Interests: Content understanding, generation and efficient ML modeling
News: Watch my lecture on Video understanding at Yale University, Topics in Deep Learning, Spring 2020.
I currently work at Tonal on machine learning and data science engineering leading the human motion and computer vision teams. Previously, I worked at NEC Labs leading the eigen team. My team and I built extremely efficient image classification, video classification, video retrieval and pose tracking methods.
