Hello there! My name is Edwin, and I’m a graduate student at Stanford University working on the next generation of intelligent sensing through the equitable application of artificial intelligence for computer vision applications.

In short, Teaching machines to understand what they see.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering with Highest Honors from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2020, along with a minor in Computer Science focused on artificial intelligence. I led a start-up company called PreSense through acquisition as part of the Alchemy Deep Tech Incubator Program, with advising from Professor Sanjay Patel, Professor Wen-mei Hwu, and Jinjun Xiong.

My primary research explores video-based 3D human pose estimation and fine-grained action recognition for medical applications.
