research
I am working with the National Institute of Standards and Technology on calibration and registration problems which have applications in computer vision, manufacturing, and robotics. For more information, check this article. For code that I often use in my research check my Calibration and Registration website.
I have also worked 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.
