Fu-Chung Huang, Computer Scientist

If you are interested in doing an internship at NVIDIA related to VR/AR, light field, computational displays/imaging/photography, foveated rendering/eye-tracking, perception graphics, or digital holography, just send me an email at fuchungh-at-nvidia-dot-com.


I do research in computer graphics, vision, and computational displays. My main research focus on combining computation with optics and human vision/perception to deliver a holistic new kind of visual experience, e.g. Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality head-mounted displays.

I finished my M.S.(2010) and Ph.D.(2013) in Computer Science from UC Berkeley, and here is my dissertation: "A Computational Light Field Display for Correcting Visual Aberrations." I did my undergraduate and MBA from National Taiwan UniversityHere is my (outdated) CV, and you can also reach me via email jonash123-at-gmail-dot-com, fuchungh-at-nvidia-dot-com, or my linkedin profile.


Over the years, I was fortunate enough to be mentored by and work with many great people (e.g. Douglas LanmanGordon WetzsteinRamesh RaskarBrian Barsky, and Ravi Ramamoorthi) at many places like UC Berkeley, MIT, and Stanford. I currently work at NVIDIA under the VP of Graphics Research David Luebke, I also collaborate with Prof. Gordon Wetzstein at Stanford since 2014; prior to that, I worked at Microsoft on some features in DirectX12 and new research prototype called "Procedural Texture" programming model.
