My primary research interests focus on integrating high-level cues (functionality, affordance, physics, causality) with raw sensory inputs (pixels and haptic signals) to enable richer representation and abstract reasoning on objects, scenes, shapes, numbers, and agents.
My work is currently supported by ONR MURI on Scene Understanding and DARPA XAI. I am a co-organizer of Vision Meets Cognition (FPIC) workshops, 3D Scene Understanding for Vision, Graphics, and Robotics workshops, and Virtual Reality Meets Physical Reality workshops.
