About Me

Working at a Robotic startup (Dexterity.AI), my broad experience is specialized in executive management (4+yr), artificial intelligence (AI) specially machine learning (ML), computer vision (CV), and image processing (8+yr), back-end/infrastructure development (4+yr), front-end development (4+yr), and networking/security (3+yr). 

While I am highly interested to create/exploit open-source code in an optimized way for a new/better solution of challenging problems while no fear to explore any new research area or technology. 

I joined RoboticEQ (aka Simplr Technologies) as the CEO in June 2017. RoboticEQ was the spin-off of the project that I was working since my CS PhD by a seed fund for innovation from Penn State. 

I was a member of Intelligent Information Systems (IIS) research lab at Penn State. I was working with Prof. James Wang (adviser) and Prof. Jesse Barlow (co-adviser), also collaborating with Prof. Zihan Zhou. 

My research interests lie in the area of computer vision, machine learning and big data computing. More specifically, I am interested in image aesthetics/composition understanding using conventional machine and deep learning, image retrieval and ranking, and multimedia processing. Also I am working in the field of big data computing specially on resource allocation in distributed systems and parallel computing.
