Educational Background: 
PhD Robotics The Australian National University, 2008
Research Interest/Activities: 

My research interest is in the intersection of robotics, vision, graphics, language processing and understanding, virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR). Most of the time, my research is underpinned by deep learning techniques. 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 and PCARI. Please checkout http://ucl.ph to see our demo and publications.
