Researcher and engineer with expertise in Computer Vision, Deep Learning, and Robotics. My recent research focuses on perception and I work on applying AI technologies to enhance and streamline business processes. Leading a team of scientists and engineers, I have gained experience across the entire product life cycle - from cultivation of ideas, prototyping, to research and development, and through to deployment and maintenance.
