I'm a researcher at MITRE, a federally funded research and development center. I completed my Ph.D. at the Computer Vision Lab at UCF with professor Mubarak Shah. I then moved to Paris where I worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at WILLOW, an INRIA/ENS project. During my time at INRIA I worked with Ivan Laptev and Josef Sivic.
My recent work has centered around exploring how we can use the growing numbers of large collections of videos as a way of learning motion and behavior priors that can help constrain the often difficult task of deteting activities within real-wolrd videos and tracking people in crowded scenes.
