I am a PhD student at the the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon. My advisor is Srinivasa Narasimhan. I was previously a Masters student at the Field Robotics Center at CMU working with Sanjiv Singh.
I am interested in computer vision and robotics. My current work involves designing algorithms and hardware that make active illumination sensing possible under challenging, real world conditions.
We have recently built a portable, low power depth camera that works in bright sunlight, can scan difficult objects and can image through light fog.
