My current passion is to push the boundaries of mobile technologies and realize the vision of "context awareness" to simplify and speed up the way we use the ever-increasing computing technologies around us. I was originally a researcher and worked on a variety of topics, including vehicular tracking, embedded sensor networks, novel human-computer interaction paradigms, recommendation systems, and human-robot interaction. Research is great for blazing the trail ahead in terms of ideas and technology. However, the engineer in me wanted to build something practical, and my energies are now focused on actually building platforms and products to turn ideas into reality.
