Bio
I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, CA, in 2008. My Ph.D. research focused on image and video coding, and the work was supported in part by NASA-JPL.

From 2009-2011, I was a postdoctoral researcher with the Image, Video and Multimedia Systems group at Stanford University, Stanford, CA. From 2012-2018, I was an Assistant Professor with Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).

I have also held research positions with Texas Instruments Research Center Japan, Nokia Research Center, IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, HP Labs Japan, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), and Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL). My research has resulted in 11 U.S. patents granted with several pending, 2 technology licensing and 1 start-ups.
