About Me

I am a PhD candidate at Harvard University, advised by Prof. Todd Zickler. My interests are computer vision, human perception and machine learning. I am currently designing stereo algorithms that are more consistent with human binocular perception. I am also working on perception-inspired shape-from-shading (sfs) problems.

Before Harvard, I received a B.A.Sc from the University of Toronto, where I was advised by Prof. Sven Dickinson and Prof. Sanja Fidler. I also did economics research with Prof. Loren Brandt, and EEG signal processing research with Dr. Amir Aghaei. I interned at Intel FPGA (then Altera) in 2013.

My name pronounces as Jah-Lee-Awn.
