Girl sitting on steps

Hi, I'm Fiona.

I am a second year Computer Science PhD student at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where I am advised by Professor James Rehg within the School of Interactive Computing. My research interests are in computer vision & perception, with applications to understanding social behavior and behavioral health indicators. I am excited about developing video and multimodal recognition models that understand people and the way they interact with each other and the 3D world around them. I am grateful to be supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

I graduated from Indiana University in 2020 with a B.S. in Computer Science and a B.M. in Clarinet Performance. At IU, I did research in the Music Informatics Lab and Computer Vision Lab. I also spent 2 summers interning at Google, where I worked on deep learning for diagnosing skin conditions and scene understanding for Nest Cams.
