Research Areas: Computer Graphics and Vision

Computational imaging
learning-based camera design, plenoptic imaging

Scene reconstruction and representation
inverse rendering, neural representations

Computational display
holographic display, VR/AR displays

Computational photography
high-performance imaging and content editing

My research interests lie in computer graphics and computer vision with a particular focus on computational imaging and display. I aim to capture, model, and analyze the high-dimensional visual information of the real world originating from complex interplays between light, material appearance, and geometry. To this end, I design end-to-end computational imaging and display systems for fundamental scientific analysis as well as diverse application domains, including mobile cameras, autonomous vehicles, VR/AR displays, and scientific instruments.
