Dr. Tony TUNG

Research Scientist Manager at Meta "Facebook"

Reality Labs - Research, San Francisco Bay Area, USA

I am a Researcher specialized in computer vision for 3D modeling and reconstruction of dynamic scenes (shape, appearance, motion). I currently work at Meta "Facebook" in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our projects include the creation of the next generation of virtual humans for AR/VR applications. I received my Ph.D. degree from Telecom Paris, France, and I was an Assistant Professor at Kyoto University, Matsuyama Lab., Japan. My past positions also include: Lead Scientist/Vice Group Manager at Rakuten, Tokyo, Japan (CV for e-commerce), R&D Engineer at Trimble, Paris area, France (3D laser scanner), and Software Engineer at Alcatel, Paris area, France (mobile services).
