I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. My research is under the supervision of Professor Bernd Girod in the area of mobile visual search (MVS), specifically addressing challenges in scalability for image/video retrieval from large databases and applying newly developed algorithms in mobile prototypes. I have also worked on personalized television news analysis as part of the Brown Institute for Media Innovation. During the past few years, I have served as the head teaching assistant for a graduate-level image processing course and have worked on integrating mobile image processing into the course curriculum.
Previously, I obtained my M.S. and B.S. (with distinction) in Electrical Engineering at Stanford with an emphasis on image and signal processing.
In the past, I worked on projects involving seismic imaging in the Dept. Geophysics at Stanford and 3D Geo Inc.; pattern detection and analysis in the Space, Telecommunications, and Radioscience (STAR) Lab within the Dept. Electrical Engineering at Stanford; and physics simulations in the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). In my undergraduate years, I also led an outside venture to develop new technologies for automobile door security and driver identification.
