About me

I am a Research Scientist at NVIDIA Research, working on 3D reconstruction and generation for content creation. I received my PhD from Johns Hopkins University, advised by Dr. Russell H Taylor and co-advised by Dr. Mathias Unberath. I received my Bachelor degree from University of British Columbia, advised by Dr. Tim Salcudean. I have also been fortunate to collaborate with many brilliant minds at JHU, UBC, Meta Reality Labs and Intuitive.


Neuralangelo has been named as the TIME's Best Inventions of 2023!
Our paper Twin-S won Best Paper Award Honorable Mention at IPCAI 2023!
I have defended my thesis! Full talk can be found here.
Our paper AMBF+ won Best Paper Award at AE-CAI 2022!
STTR accepted at ICCV 2021 as an Oral Paper!
