Name FAQ: `Foe'-`eee'. It rhymes with snowy or Joey: the key is to forget how it is spelled. It (but not me) is from County Cork, Ireland.
Pictures: One picture is hard to identify a person with. Here are some more.

Summary: I am a postdoctoral fellow (2016-) at UC Berkeley, working with Jitendra Malik and Alyosha Efros. I received a Ph.D. in Robotics (2011-2016) from The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I worked with Abhinav Gupta and Martial Hebert and was a NSF and then NDSEG fellow.



I work on computer vision and machine learning and I am generally interested in these two areas. However, I am particularly interested in two aspects of vision. Both are motivated by the somewhat obvious observation that images are the projection of a real, physical, and 3D world to a 2D image plane of an agent. This has lead to research on understanding the world in terms of:

Joke Papers

Sometimes when I feel a creative itch, the end result is a joke publication (which despite the name often have a serious point to make). These are all done with the one and only Daniel Maturana.
