Publications Talks Teaching Code Datasets

I'm a research manager at Facebook AI Research in Menlo Park, and an affiliate associate professor at the University of Washington. My current areas of interest include object recognition, language and vision, and reasoning. For more details please see my publications page. I serve on the board of the Common Visual Data Foundation whose mission is to aid the computer vision community in creating datasets and competitions. Previously, I spent 12 great years at Microsoft Research, and obtained a PhD in Robotics from CMU's Robotics Institute.
