. In the past, I have worked as a Software Engineer @eBay Geo Expansion and contributed as major contributor to Machine Translation Service, MT engines and decoders. Before joining eBay I worked as a Software Engineer for Microsoft and contributed to Outlook for Mac and Microsoft Dynamics Ax. I also worked for AMD as a Software Engineer/technical team lead for Manufacturing Technology Group.
In grad school , I have worked on shadow removal using High dynamic range imaging which was generously funded by NEH through USD 30,000 grant . Apart from this, I also worked on various projects dealing with MRF based image segmentation, computer vision based tracking, recognition and identification, haptics, face and speech recognition,image reconstruction. Some of works have been published in reputed conferences and journals in the respective domains.
My Master’s research on vision based sketch recognition was partially funded by NSF through IIS grant #0757557.
