I am an assistant professor in the School of Computing Science at Simon Fraser University. I lead a group of researchers working at the intersection of computer graphics and computer vision with a focus on computational photography and image manipulation. Our long-term goal is to connect the ways we understand and process digital imagery with human cognition and artistic expression. We are a part of the rich visual computing environment at SFU CS.
My doctoral research has been on novel representations for images that allow easier analysis of photographs with applications to realistic image editing and movie post-production. I received my PhD degree in Computer Science from ETH Zurich under supervision of Marc Pollefeys. During my PhD, I spent a year at MIT CSAIL with Wojciech Matusik's group and 3 years at Disney Research Zurich.
