I’m a research manager at Apple, where I work on the 3D Vision Team. My team and I work on technology that powers features such as Visual Localization for Maps and Augmented Reality, detailed 3D city maps, Look Around, and 3D Flyover. We tackle a lot of fun (and challenging) problems in large scale 3D mapping, geometry and positioning using a mix of classical geometry and machine learning. If any of this sounds interesting, feel free to get in touch!
recently a while ago received a PhD from the Department of Computer Science at UNC Chapel Hill. I worked in the 3D Computer Vision group, advised by Jan-Michael Frahm and Marc Pollefeys. During my PhD, I focused on applications that involved 3D modeling and understanding of real-world scenes, objects and events.
