Research Interest/Activities:
My research interest is in the intersection of robotics, vision, graphics, language understanding, and virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR). My lifelong goal is to build a society surrounded by intelligent systems that automate most of our daily tasks. I have research grants funded by DOST-PCIEERD, CHED-PCARI, and Samsung.
