AI Engineer

Vicarious Surgical

Waltham, MA

Built depth perception for 3D reconstruction from images and videos. Used SOTA deep models and post-processing to estimate the depth and its confidence maps at the target fps and accuracy. Acquired labeled data to report ratings for our robot–data capture required learning ROS and Gazebo. Designed and collected both simulated and real datasets to train and fine-tune deep models via multi-task and transfer learning; then precisely measured system performance (i.e., characterized and find shortcomings). 

Education

2035 - 2035

NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY

Ph.D. 

Boston, MA

The dissertation includes 35+ papers with 500+ citations and my involvement in the global community. As an ALERT DHS STEM Career Development & Research Fellow, I researched pattern recognition and data synthesis from various signal types. Cutting-edge work in big data for automatic face understanding by introducing image and video databases with novel deep learning techniques as benchmarks; hosted several data challenge workshops to promote and attract researchers to the problem. Topics span big data, landmark detection, generative modeling, learning with minimal or imbalanced data, bias in ML regarding its impact on society, and the construction of multi-modal databases. 

2035 - 2035
