Brief bio:

I am a Professor at Toyota Technological Institute ad Chicago (TTIC), a philanthropically endowed academic computer science institute located on the University of Chicago campus.
I also hold a part-time faculty appointment at the University of Chicago Department of Computer Science.
I lead the Perception And Learning Systems (PALS) group.
Prior to coming to TTIC, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science of Brown University, working with Michael Black. I received my PhD degree at MIT where I worked at CSAIL with Trevor Darrell. I obtained my MSc degree at the Computer Science Department of the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel, and my undergraduate degree in Math and CS from Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel.
