I'm an autonomous vehicle researcher building in the intersection between computer vision and self-driving cars.

Current: student researcher at UT Austin, member @Masason Foundation, creating SLAM-based systems for long-term data association. updates coming soon!

Prev generative modelling research @uiuc and where I worked with Shell, the United Nations, and Instacart. Also am one of the youngest certified self-driving car engineers in the world, was featured on Udacity for the work I'm doing.

My primary research interests are in the field of autonomous vehicles, more specifically towards computer vision for vision-based autonomy. You can find some of my projects in this space below. This is just an overview of the work I'm doing. For a full list, please check my Github.

clean-usnob CUDA-Optimized Semantic Segmentation for Autonomous Vehicles
February 2023 - May 2023

Leveraging CUDA + OpenCV + PyTorch's C++ API (LibTorch) using TorchScript to run semantic segmentation at the highest FPS possible

clean-usnob Creating Autonomous Vehicles with Deep-Q Networks
January 2022 - February 2022
RL Article / Tweet

Leveraged Reinforcement Learning algorithms to help train a self-driving agent to drive in a highway environment [using discrete controls].

clean-usnob End2End Learning for Lateral Control
November 2021 - January 2022
Research Proposal / Tweet

Used Deep Convolutional Networks to control self-driving steering, read more than 60 papers in the space, and met some really smart people from the + team!

clean-usnob DataGAN: Leveraging Synthetic Data for Self-Driving Vehicles
September 2021 - October 2021
Medium article / Github

Using DC-GANs to create synthetic data that can be used to train + validate the robustness of autonomous vehicles. End goal is to apply to extrapolate the data pool we have for adverse driving scenarios/any situations where limited data is available.

clean-usnob Convolutional-LSTMs for Lane Detection
July 2021 - August 2021
Project abstract / Github

Implemented this paper from scratch with just my knowledge of Python and stackoverflow. Focusing on managing spatio-temporal image data for successful training of lane detection. Lanes don't change every single frame, so why can't we take in a few input frames and be able to successfully predict lane lines? Note: Github repository is not up to date as I have been unable to locate some of the files as part of training but the ConvLSTM model and training loop is created (and formatted nicely!).

clean-usnob Building a self-driving car!
May 2021
Medium article / Certificate / Github

Used my knowledge throughout the Udacity Self-Driving Nanodegree [from perception and sensor fusion of LiDAR and radar sensors to polynomial trajectory generation] to create my capstone project; an autonomous vehicle capable of driving in simulation (using waypoitns). I built trajectory algorithms, localization algorithnms, and kalman filters to name a few of the projects I built!

clean-usnob Pairing Lane Detection with Object Detection
March 2021
Medium article / Github

Creating a custom lane detection pipeline w/ Gaussian Filters + Polynomial fitting along with object detection using sliding windows w/ SVMs with the use of pure Machine Learning.
