Hello there! My name is Daniel Castro, I am a PhD student under Dr. Irfan Essa at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I completed my undergraduate degree in Computer Science at GT in May 2013. Throughout my doctoral career I have focused on understanding human motion. Outside of my research, I helped start 2 Oceans Brewing with three of my friends, I love discussing any and everything related to beer. I have an affinity for adrenaline rushes (skydiving, canyon jumping), occassionally I write poetry , love woodworking, and spending time becoming a better person :).
