Bio:

I am a PhD Candidate in the Laboratory for Perception, Action and Cognition (LPAC) at Penn State university advised by Professor Yanxi Liu.  My main interests like in Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence, and Cognitive Psychology.  Specifically in

   -  understanding deep learning, especially about vision related tasks

   -  computational symmetry (such as wallpaper patterns, rotation and reflection symmetry)

   -  human perception of symmetry

   -  CAPTCHAs

 

I helped out with CVPR 2017 with the paper matching, pluralism detection, organizing, and a lot more.  Check out these interactive graphs I made using D3 for visualizing the paper areas by accepted papers:

    -   Primary Areas

    -   Secondary Areas

 

Before Penn State, I got my masters in Computer Science from PACE university working with Professor D. Paul Benjamin.

    - Creating cognitive architectures with physics simulations
