Who are you, then?
Okay. So what do you?
My work focuses on advancing fundamental computer vision research through applying unsupervised learning to real-world problems.
Why work on that?
Aside from being inherently interesting, I work on unsupervised computer vision because of its potential impact in climate/earth/environmental science and remote sensing. Said another way, unsupervised computer vision will be one of the most powerful diagnostic, planning, and evaluation tools in the fight against climate change and the various problems it creates.
How did you wind up here?
Before restarting my Ph.D. in January 2020, I left grad school to start a software company with a few of the most talented folks I've ever met (Sean, Joey, and Avi). And before that, I worked with Maneesh Agrawala and also completed a research-based masters at Cambridge with Zoubin Ghahramani working on statistical machine learning (Bayesian nonparametrics).
What else do you?
Yeah, but what else do you?
I also run ultra marathons, bake, and drink oat milk cappuccinos. I love to talk about and do these things, so reach out if you'd like to join me. Oh, and my brother is an amazingly talented and prolific artist.
Your name is really "Colorado"?
Yup. Since birth. Sharing a name with a state is surprisingly common, see Tennessee Williams, Indiana Jones, Virginia Woolf, Dakota Fanning, Georgia O'Keeffe, Tex Ritter, or York Bowen ;-).
