Publications Talks Teaching Code Datasets

I'm a research manager at Facebook AI Research in Menlo Park, and an affiliate associate professor at the University of Washington. Previously, I spent 12 great years at Microsoft Research.


My current areas of interest include object recognition, language and vision, and reasoning. For more details please see my publications page.

Information about combating illegal imagery and PhotoDNA can be found here.
