I am a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Human-Centered Computing program at Georgia Tech. I design, implement and evaluate systems that can sense, recognize and model people’s everyday life activities in service of health and well-being applications. My research combines technical approaches from Ubicomp, HCI, Machine Learning, and Signal Processing.
I am currently looking for a faculty position: CV | Research Statement | Teaching Statement | Diversity Statement

Attended IUI 2015 in Atlanta this week, it was great to reconnect with friends. Icing on the cake: our paper was awarded best short paper at the conference.

Great news. My work in collaboration with UW colleagues about food journaling barriers has been named a Best of CHI 2015 paper.

Finished collecting data, data analysis begins. Preliminary results look good. Ubicomp deadline 3 weeks away.

My colleague Vinay Bettadapura has setup a project page for our work on automatic food recognition in restaurants leveraging contextual clues. This work was just presented at WACV 2015.

Notification of papers accepted at CHI and IUI. Hello 2015.

Planning for upcoming conference deadlines. Ran into Karpathy’s nice hacker’s guide to neural networks and spent a bunch of time on it. Don’t miss his ConvNetJS library too – Deep Learning in the browser.

Working on research and teaching statements. Lots of work, but well-worth the effort.

Updated the blog design and structure. Instead of long blog posts, more frequent short updates. Everyone wins. It’s a work in progress though; more changes coming.
