SAVE THE DATE Tapia 2018 Orlando, FL September 19-22, 2018

2017 Tapia Conference

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Microsoft New York working in the Fairness Accountability Transparency and Ethics (FATE) group. Prior to joining MSR, I was a PhD student in the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, studying computer vision under Fei-Fei Li. My main research interest lies in data mining large scale publicly available images to gain sociological insight, and working on computer vision problems that arise as a result. The Economist and others have recently covered part of this work. Some of the computer vision areas I am interested in include fine-grained image recognition, scalable annotation of images, and domain adaptation. I am currently studying how to take dataset bias into account while designing machine learning algorithms, and the ethical considerations underlying any data mining project. Before working towards my PhD, I worked at Apple designing circuits and signal processing algorithms for various Apple products including the first iPad. I also spent one year as an entrepreneur.
