In collaboration with Home Hardware, Home Software, Thermal Design, Hardware QA, Sensing Hardware: machine learning models and self-heating correction algorithms on the HomePod and HomePod Mini for temperature and humidity sensing.
I'm a Filipino-American Computer Scientist, and a Research and Engineering Manager at Apple. I lead the Sensing Technologies Group under Machine Intelligence Neural Design at AIML. Our mission is to innovate and build differentiating experiences that make a profound impact on people through research and development in sensing and on-device AI. Applications of our work include health technologies, context-driven systems, and future device interactions.
I completed my Ph.D. at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science. Prior to Apple, I was a Google Ph.D. Fellow, a recipient of the Fast Company Innovation by Design Award, a Disney Imagineer, and a recipient of nine Best Paper Awards and Nominations at premier venues in human-computer interaction.I'm also an Affiliate Professor at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science and Human-Computer Interaction Institute. Last Fall (SY22-23), I gave guest lectures for 05-430 - Programming User Interfaces and 11-776 - On-Device Machine Learning at CMU, along with Debates in Design at UC-Berkeley (with Dr. Bjoern Hartmann).
