Mike brings a passion for applying cutting edge computer vision technology to problems where he can make an impact on people's lives. He is excited to focus his attention and skills on the agricultural sector and make a contribution improving how we grow and harvest food while reducing our environmental impact on the world. During his PhD in Computer Engineering at UC Santa Cruz, he researched and developed technology to assist blind people to read documents that would otherwise be inaccessible to them. Previously he worked as a scientist at Amazon's computer vision search team on embedded computer vision solutions. Mike moved to Colorado to join Tortuga, and loves to explore all the mountains.
