About Me

I'm a PhD. student supervised by Kyros Kutulakos, working on optical aberrations in photography and defocus analysis. I also worked with Neel Joshi and Ashish Kapoor on perceptual image quality assessment at Microsoft Research (Redmond), and with Steve Lin on defocus removal at Microsoft Research Asia (Beijing).

In general, I'm interested in computational photography and lower-level vision.
