I am the Aravind K. Joshi Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania, where I lead the Penn Computer Graphics Lab and I am also a member of the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing & Perception (GRASP) Lab.
Previously, I was a Lise Meitner Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Max Planck Institute for Informatics. I received my Ph.D. degree at the University of Hong Kong in 2019.
My research interests are at the interface of Computer Graphics, Computer Vision, and AI, with a focus on Neural Scene Representations, Neural Rendering, Human Performance Modeling and Capture, and 3D Reconstruction. I am especially excited about exploring a new genre of 3D reconstruction and rendering algorithms for human characters and general scenes, which combine classical computer graphics pipelines with deep learning techniques.
My long-term vision is to develop AI technologies that can perceive, understand and interact with 3D objects, people, and environments. Specifically, my research will pursue three goals:
(1) High-quality 3D reconstruction of real-world scenes from sparse inputs;
(2) Efficient and photo-realistic image synthesis of real-world scenes with 3D control;
(3) Large-scale 3D scene generation.
I am looking for highly motivated students to join my lab at the University of Pennsylvania.
If you want to work with me, please send me an email with your research interests, resume, and transcripts.
For prospective PhD students: please apply through the department system and list me as a potential supervisor in your application. You may also send me an email.
Due to the large number of emails received, I might not be able to respond to all the emails. Sorry!
