Experience

Oct 2021 - Present Senior ML R&D Engineer at Bodymapp Ltd

Bodymapp introduces the concept of body scanning to consumers by leveraging Computer Vision, Image Processing, Machine Learning and depth sensing technology in mobile devices. Bodymapp renders a 3D avatar of the user’s body, providing body measurements for health and fitness tracking.

• Led R&D sub-division using agile and scrum workflow to develop reconstruction part of the Bodymapp back-end
• Organized and led daily R&D stand-ups and weekly meetings with C-Level executives, briefing on progress
• Researched and engineered utilities for unstructured data processing using machine learning and computer vision libraries such as scikit-learn, pandas, PyTorch, TensorFlow, OpenCV, and Open3d
• Devised supervised training pipeline to undistort the data addressing the acute problem of distorted iPhone depth maps
• Developed in-house pre-release Systematic Evaluation metrics to enable data-driven decisions for measuring the accuracy, robustness and aesthetics of back-end output using ML concepts
• Designed a robust processing pipeline for calibration, cleaning, rectification and conversion of noisy in-coming data from iPhone sensors to prepare them for the registration and reconstruction stage
• Devised the complete post-processing module to create an appealing visualization of the outcome
• Leveraged cloud pipeline to perform rapid large-scale accuracy and aesthetic evaluations of releases
• Followed the complete cycle of the CI/CD pipeline according to the changing needs
• Used AWS DevOps and MLOps pipelines (bash, python, s3, ec2, cloud watch) for development and deployment and batch processing
• Displayed a dedication to ongoing learning and remaining at the forefront of technological advancements by keeping abreast of the latest research in the field

Dec 2019 - Oct 2021 Senior ML Engineer at NSW Department of Primary Industries-UTS

The project was conducted by the NSW Department of Primary Industries in collaboration with UTS worth $1.2M, aiming to automate cattle scanning for trait estimation by eliminating manual ultrasound scanning. By capturing 3D data via an advanced sensors set-up and processing via Computer Vision and Image Processing, and Machine learning the system can estimate fatness and muscle scores to increase productivity for the beef industry.

• Developed computer vision and image processing algorithms to capture, convert, pre-process and clean the data achieved via 3D sensor setup
• Devised a novel approach to reconstruct a model of a deformable object leveraging machine learning and computer vision libraries
• Developed and programmed two types of intrinsic and extrinsic online calibration methods for a rig of depth sensors as part of robotics perception
• Implemented my proposed non-rigid registration framework
• Conducted and programmed comprehensive error analysis and evaluation using ML models on the devised non-rigid registration and reconstruction
• Simulated the cattle scanning setup with depth sensors on ROS and Gazebo Platform
• Attended periodic meetings and pitched the progress of the project to the stakeholders
• Carried out field trials for testing the setup and pipeline, as well as collecting the data
• Implemented and evaluated the state-of-the-art methods for scanning
• Mentored and advised junior engineers and students

July 2015 - Dec 2019 PhD ML Research Scholar at UTS Robotics Institute (UTS:RI)

UTS Robotics Institute UTS specializes in delivering customized robotics and software solutions to maximize productivity, improve quality and safety, and generate efficiencies for commercial and government partners.
