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.
