Welcome new PhD student Joshua Peeples!

The Machine Learning and Sensing Lab is excited to welcome Joshua Peeples to our lab as a new Ph.D. student! Joshua has recently been awarded the Graduate School Preeminence Award (GSPA) to fund his studies at the University of Florida! He is currently completing a BSEE in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Mathematics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He has previously conducted research on various projects that involving autonomous vehicles, computer vision, image and video processing, and robotics. He has also conducted research to help improve a lane detection algorithm by incorporating use of the YCbCr colorspace and intensity channels within an edge detection process. He also added sign and vehicle detection components to the algorithms package. In our lab, Joshua will be working on Machine Learning Techniques for Object Detection. Welcome to our lab, Joshua!
