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.

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.
