April 2013 My colleagues and I have recently gotten our paper Augmenting CRFs with Boltzmann Machine Shape Priors for Image Labeling accepted at CVPR 2013!
2012 My colleagues and I have published our JMLR paper Bounding the Probability of Error for High Precision Optical Character Recognition.
I am a last year graduate student in the School of Computer Science at UMass Amherst.
My research interests include topics in Computer Vision and Machine Learning. In particular, I study nonparameteric models with applications to character recognition, face recognition and segmentation. My focus is on using machine learning tools to build practical, useful applications in Computer Vision.
