I am currently a member of the autonomous vehicle perception group at NVIDIA Corporation working on the NVIDIA DRIVE platform. Our team is focused on finding open parking spots using deep neural networks. Prior to that, I was a member of the localization team working on methods and algorithms for localization of self-driving cars to high-definition (HD) maps. Our work is available as a part of NVIDIA DRIVE software.

Concurrently, I am a PhD candidate in the Department Computer Science at the University of Central Florida (UCF) working under the supervision of Dr. Joseph LaViola. My research is focused on deep recurrent neural networks (RNN) for gesture recognition and synthesis (yes, I’m working full-time and doing a PhD at the same time! 🙂 ).

Prior to that, I was a student and graduate teaching assistant in the Department of Computer Science at Brock University working under the supervision of Dr. Brian Ross. My master’s research was focused on real-time and automatic object classification and tracking using genetic programming (GP) and NVIDIA CUDA.
