I am Professor of Graphics & Imaging in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, and an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at NTNU, Norway. At Imperial, I lead the Realistic Graphics and Imaging group and my current research interests include appearance modeling, and computational illumination and photography for graphics and vision. I have previously held an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship, and a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award in the area of realistic computer graphics. My group co-organized (jointly with UCL) the Eurographics Symposium on Rendering (EGSR) 2020, and I recently served as Program co-Chair for EGSR 2022.
Before joining Imperial, I was a senior researcher in the Graphics Lab of the USC Institute for Creative Technologies and a research assistant professor of Computer Science at USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering. I have significantly contributed to USC-ICT’s Lightstage facial capture system using polarized spherical gradient illumination, which has been recognized with a Technical Achievement Award in 2019 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
