about: I'm a Senior AI Scientist at Paige, a Visiting Professor at Cornell Tech, and an assistant professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).

At Paige, I lead R&D for creating deep learning systems for improving detection and treatment of cancer. Paige has raised over $70M in VC funding and is the world-leader in computational pathology.

At Cornell Tech, I teach graduate-level courses on deep learning.

At RIT, I lead a research group that uses deep learning for lifelong machine learning and goal-driven image understanding. I am also associate director of RIT's Center for Human Aware Artificial Intelligence (CHAI).

Previously, I worked at NASA JPL, where I worked on perception systems for autonomous robots. Besides machine learning and computer vision, I have a background in theoretical neuroscience, cognitive modeling, and eye tracking.

I received my PhD from UC San Diego.
