I am a Ph.D. student in the Cornell Department of Computer Science. My research mostly focuses on numerical linear algebra and its applications to problems in science and engineering. Most recently, I have been working on applying linear algebraic techniques to the problem of identifying failed power lines in electrical power networks.
Some past projects of mine have included
- Developing machine learning techniques for recognizing human acitivites in unstructured environments.
- Efficiently computing a rotation-invariant principal component analysis of huge sets of images.
