I am a scientist with a wide set of interests and 20 years of R&D experience, with 8 years spent at Microsoft Research.
My professional work spans a range from electronic design to robotics and computer vision. My particular strengths lie in image recognition and machine learning for image search, location recognition, and real-time tracking and reconstruction. A recent focus has been in developing techniques to enable cell-phone based augmented reality, and also for robot localization.
I left Microsoft in the fall of 2010. Since then I have been consulting and have developed various hardware and software solutions for machine intelligence / computer vision, including a system for real time stereo reconstruction.
At the moment I am building a business in robotics and computer vision, with a particular emphasis on visual sensing for autonomous navigation.
