I am a computer vision researcher in the computer vision and multimedia group at IBM Research AI, My current research interest includes vision and language, interactive image retrieval, multi-modal dialogs and computer vision for fashion. Previously at IBM, I worked on food visual recognition, which was integrated into Watson Visual Recognition Cloud API. Prior to joining IBM, I received my PhD in Computer Science from UNC Charlotte, with a thesis focus on manifold learning based machine learning techniques applied to image set analysis problems.
