I am a Research Scientist at Facebook AI Research.
Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at UC Berkeley with Alyosha Efros
and Trevor Darrell and at Stanford with Fei-Fei Li.
I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from UC Berkeley in 2016, where I was advised by
Trevor Darrell and
I was awarded the NSF Graduate Fellowship and the Rosalie M. Stern Fellowship.
My thesis focused on transferrable representation learning for visual recognition.
My research lies at the intersection of computer vision and machine learning and focuses on tackling real-world variation and scale while minimizing human supervision. I develop learning algorithms which facilitate transfer of information through unsupervised and semi-supervised model adaptation and generalization.
I love to get out of the lab and travel, hike, and generally just enjoy the outdoors. My favorite recent destinations have been Glacier National Park, Alaska, and the Swiss Alps.
