Fu-Chung Huang, Computer Scientist



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 I did my undergraduate and MBA from National Taiwan UniversityHere is my (outdated) CV, and you can also reach me via email jonash123-at-gmail-dot-com, or my linkedin profile.


Over the years in the graduate studies, I was fortunate enough to collaborate with many great people (e.g. Douglas LanmanGordon WetzsteinRamesh RaskarBrian Barsky, and Ravi Ramamoorthi) at many places like UC Berkeley, MIT, and Stanford. I also worked at NVIDIA under the VP of Graphics Research David Luebke. Previously, I collaborated 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.
