Staff Software Engineer
I am currently a Staff Software Engineer at X leading mapping and localization at the Everyday Robots Project.
Previously, I worked at Bosch on mapping and localization for automated driving.
I obtained my Ph.D. from the Intelligent Systems and Technologies (ISAT) Lab at the School of Industrial Engineering, Purdue University in July 2014. Before that, I graduated from the MSE Robotics program at the GRASP Lab, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, University of Pennsylvania in August 2009. My work experience includes a year at Technicolor Corporate Research from 2009-2010 in Princeton, NJ. My research interests include optimization and statistical pattern recognition applied to problems in computer vision and robotics.
