Background

I am a Ph.D. student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University.  I received my Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in April 2001.  I graduated  from Ateneo de Manila University, Philippines, with a Bachelor of Science in Physics (1998) and Computer Engineering (1999).  My Resume.


Research

I am a member of the Image, Video and Multimedia Systems Group, the research group of Professor Bernd Girod.  My research is on distributed source coding and its applications. Using Wyner-Ziv coding, we are developing a low-complexity video encoder for wireless cameras and a novel error-resiliency technique for video broadcasting. We are also applying distributed souce coding techniques to compression for large camera arrays and random access of light fields.
