I am a research scientist at Facebook Reality Lab. Previously, I was a Ph.D. student at The Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University where I worked with Prof. Srinivasa Narasimhan and Prof. Yaser Sheikh on novel methods to capture dense and accurate 3D shape of human bodies. Before that, I worked with Prof. Zhaoyang Wang at the Catholic University of America, where I got B.E. degree in Electrical Engineering, on camera calibration, structured light system, and tracking algorithms.


I am very interested in various aspects of 3D vision and physics-based vision (e.g., shape, motion, reflectance, and illumination) for human scene understanding. The goal is to develop holistic and end-to-end machine learning systems that understand and recreate virtual environments that are perceptually indistinguishable from reality.

Internships: I am always looking for strong graduate students to collaborate with. If you are interested in interning at FRL with me, send me an email detailing what your research interests are, and what you would like to work on during the internship.
