Research Scientist

I am a research scientist working on augmented reality for mobile devices. I lead a team focused on connecting our physical and digital worlds through augmented reality into a single, shared, social experience.   Prior to Facebook, I worked at Microsoft for 4 years, where I was the leading computer vision researcher on the Hololens free-viewpoint video team. I received my PhD in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University in 2012 under the guidance of Prof. Martial Hebert and Prof. Siddhartha Srinivasa.
