About Me


When beginning my doctoral studies, my advisor posed the question, “Where can we apply Computer Vision on the Internet?” I quickly remembered that I hated ‘tagging’ my friends in photo albums, beginning my exploration of Face Recognition methods for large, real-world datasets. I am a curious individual, looking for ways to use our computing resources to enhance the way we live.

I completed my B.S. and M.S. in Computer Engineering in May of 2007 and 2009, respectively, at the University of Central Florida. During my undergraduate career I had the privilege to work on many different projects in both Physics and Computer Engineering. For more information visit Undergraduate Research.

I am currently a PhD student in the Center for Research in Computer Vision at the University of Central Florida specializing in Computer Vision under the mentorship of Dr. Mubarak Shah. Throughout my graduate career, I have been exposed to a wide range of areas including tracking, registration, action recognition, and face recognition. My areas of expertise focus on real-world human action and facial recognition. For more information on my work visit my Research Projects.
