Abhishek is currently a PhD candidate at the MIT and his research focuses on the application of light field imaging and other computer vision techniques to help improve visual perception for autonomous vehicles. Prior to this, he worked on developing light field imaging driven 3D flow velocimetry techniques for fast processing of large data sets.
Abhishek is an strong advocate of open source software, and is always willing to contribute to efforts that promote the adoption of open source in science, research and education. He has created openfv.org to share all software he has developed for his doctoral research. He is also the co-founder of Gryd (gryd.us), a cloud platform focused on enabling research, analytics and education using open source languages and libraries.
When he is not collecting data in a robot car or writing code, he enjoys music, cooking, photography, and all things tech. He love watching movies and would love to make a few in the future.
