I recently started Beam AI with the wonderfully knowledgable Dr. Leonid Sigal where I currently serve as CEO. At Beam AI, we enable smartphone apps to monitor user pulse, HRV and stress (according to the Baevsky stress index) through the selfie camera. Learn more at Beam AI!

I completed my graduate studies in Machine Learning at the University of British Columbia under the supervision of Dr. Frank Wood where I divided my time between UBC PLAI Group as a graduate researcher and Inverted AI as a research engineer. Previously, I completed my undergraduate studies in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia. During my time at UBC, I also had the pleasure of collaborating with Dr. Leonid Sigal and Dr. Guiseppe Carenini on a range of Computer Vision / NLP problems.

I'm broadly interested in developing methods that allow for intelligent reasoning within the visual space. My past research has been primarily focused on few-shot and semi-supervised learning of object classifiers and detectors. Recently, I've begun work on computer vision for healthcare, specifically developing fast and effective methods for video-based vitals measurement and monitoring.
