My thesis work explores a method of video navigation using metadata input. I designed a new media metadata file format (MED). I implemented the format in the popular VLC Media Player. The format allows viewers to tag and annotate events in the video, play only the types of events they are interested in (customizing the video), and navigate quickly during playback.

I have also worked on the Jedi (puppet) Masters project that won first place in the People's Choice category at the UIST 2012 student competition.
