I am working with the National Institute of Standards and Technology on calibrating six degree of freedom (6DoF) problems which has applications in manufacturing. For more information, check my CVIU paper.
I am also working on calculating a symmetry preserving singular value decomposition (SPSVD), which is a matrix factorization that gives the best symmetric low rank approximation to a set of data. This decomposition has applications in molecular dynamics and face detection. For more information, check my SIMAX paper.
