Eric Smith also joined the computer vision group at the Clifton Park location. He is currently completing his Ph.D. at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, where he also received his B.S. in computer science. Mr. Smith has experience as a research assistant with RPI’s vision group. In this position, he contributed to projects where he developed algorithms for registering pairs of image scans, multi-scan registration algorithms, and an intensity-based physical scale SIFT-like keypoint for exploiting the physical scale of range data.

Sankhesh Jhaveri joined the scientific computing team in Clifton Park. He holds a master’s degree in biomedical engineering from Drexel University in Philadelphia and a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from the Dwarkadas J. Sanghvi College of Engineering in Mumbai, India, where his thesis was “Improving an Automated Mosaicing Algorithm for Wide-Field Microscopy.” Mr. Jhaveri previously worked as a consultant at GE’s visualization and computer vision lab in Niskayuna, NY.
