Introduction

I'm a Ph.D. student in computer science at the University of British Columbia. I do research in machine learning and its application in computer vision. I'm being supervised by Jim Little and Mark Schmidt. I did my M.Sc. at UBC under supervision of Jim Little. Prior to that, I received my B.Sc. degree from AUT. You can access my latest CV here.
