Takaaki Shiratori

Research Scientist, Facebook Reality Labs


I am a Research Scientist at Facebook Reality Labs in Pittsburgh. My current research interests lie in computer vision and graphics, particularly high-fidelity modeling of human. I also used to work on robotics, motion capture, and HCI for graphics.

Prior to joining Facebook Reality Labs, I worked at Carnegie Mellon University and Disney Research as a postdoctoral researcher and at Microsoft Research Asia as a researcher. I received my PhD in Information Science and Technology from The University of Tokyo in 2007.
