The ramblings of a disappointed idealist.

Thanks for visiting my website. I’m a PhD computer scientist who works in the field of Computer Vision. In particular, I am interested in applying Computer Vision in environments with limited computational resources and strict real-time deadlines. I have experience with embedded sofware development, numerical programming and optimization, face tracking, object tracking and machine learning. I like to design algorithms that are effective, fast and will run on anything - from fully fledged high performance clusters to cellular phones.

Hopefully you find something worthwhile here. There’s a mix of some professional/research stuff, but my blog is almost entirely personal.

All opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone, and don’t necessarily reflect the views of any organization with which I am associated.
