My research is in computer vision, the field concerned with analyzing images (which might be taken with a video camera). I'm particularly interested in stereo vision, i.e., extracting 3D information from two 2D images. (Take CS 453 if you want to learn more about this!) I'm also interested in computer graphics and computer architecture. I have great fun teaching computer science, in particular how to program. Having to achieve the "perfection" required to write a working program can be a mind-bending intellectual experience!
To get my mind off work, I love to play music. My main instrument is the drums, but I also play many other instruments (with varying levels of skill :). At Middlebury I play "Vermonto-Rican Folk-Rock for the Hard-of-Hearing" with The Doughboys, and also with the jazz/latin/fusion group Mogani and the band Soularium. While at Cornell, I was the drummer with the CS department's rock band Harmful if Swallowed.
I have fun inventing and building things, often
with rather non-traditional applications.
I have started a company that builds
and sells digital sundials.
