Eric Kee

I am currently at Uber Advanced Technologies Group, where I develop computer vision and machine learning algorithms for vehicle perception in driverless cars. Previously I was a research scientist and engineer at Avametric, a physical simulation startup with Prof. James O'Brien, UC Berkeley. Prior to that, I was a research scientist and engineer at Facebook, computational imaging. Prior to that, I was a postdoc with professor Shree Nayar in the CAVE lab at Columbia. Lastly, and most importantly, my dissertation work was at Dartmouth with advisor Hany Farid.

My research background includes topics in: computer vision, machine learning, computer graphics, and image forensics.
