Electrical Engineering
I am a fifth-year PhD. candidate in the Electrical Engineering department at the University of Washington advised by Prof. Gaetano Borriello. My main research interest is Ubiquitous computing where I work on combining sensing with machine learning techniques to create systems which can perform activity inference—that is inferring what activities a person is performing like walking, running, traveling home, etc. The majority of these systems focus on medical applications designed to provide users and caregivers more insight into people’s lives.
