I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at George Mason University. My advisor is Prof. Jana Kosecka. My research focus lies in areas of Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Robotics. Particularly, I am interested in the understanding of the semantic and geometric structure of a scene by utilizing the depth (e.g., Kinect sensor) and image data.

Prior to joining George Mason University, I have completed my MS in Computer Science from the Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA in 2011.
