I am working on my PhD at Caltech, advised by Pietro Perona and funded by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I did my BS at Seattle University where I was advised by Agnieszka Miguel. My research work focuses on machine learning and computer vision for biodiversity monitoring, particulary for detection and recognition of animal species in challenging camera trap data at a global scale. I work closely with Microsoft AI for Earth and Wildlife Insights where I help turn my research into usable tools for the biodiversity community.
