Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Northeastern University, Boston, MA
In a nutshell
My research focus is in applied machine learning, typically vision. My interests in STEM (and sometimes non-STEM) related topics span well beyond that. Outside of work and academia I enjoy catching up with family and friends, playing hockey or rollerblading with Jax (my dog), doing the occasional cook off, travel, ski, and, more often than not, some light reading.
