About

I'm a third-year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia. I work in the Imager lab in Wolfgang Heidrich's Physical Simulation and Measurement group. Before joining Imager lab I was a student in the group of Andreas Kolb.

My research interests are centered around computational photography, optimization and displays.

Industry: I am working with our startup Algolux to commercially realize our work on imaging with simple optics for smartphones.

Recent news: I was lucky to win the NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship 2015 awarding 25K USD to my research.

That's me.
I should have smiled a bit more ...
