I am a Distinguished Scientist at Apple. I am building a new international research organization. We are hiring. Email me with your CV if interested.

Prior to Apple, I was the Chief Scientist for Intelligent Systems at Intel, where I built an international research lab, based on four continents, that produced high-impact results in robotics, computer vision, image synthesis, machine learning, and other areas. I have mentored more than 50 PhD students, postdocs, research scientists, and PhD student interns, many of whom are now successful research leaders.
