Seung-Hwan Baek (백승환) [CV] [LinkedIn] [Google Scholar]

I'm a 4th year Ph.D. candidate supervised by Prof. Min H. Kim at KAIST.

My research interests lie in computer graphics and computer vision with a particular focus on computational imaging and computational photography. I have jointly developed optics and algorithms to solve graphics and vision problems such as depth acquisition, appearance capture, polarization imaging, and hyperspectral imaging. Also, I have designed algorithms for the applications of conventional imaging systems: SLAM, multi-view stereo, and image synthesis.

I'm a recipient of ACM SIGGRAPH Asia Doctoral Consortium, Microsoft Research Asia Ph.D. Fellowship and best paper/demo awards at ACCV 2014.
