2013-03-01 – Our paper on Constructing High-Resolution Stereo Panoramas (‘Megastereo’) was accepted to CVPR 2013 (oral).
2012-09-17 – I fixed some bugs and updated the source code and binaries of my RGBZ camera paper (see page for details).
I am a recent (2012) PhD graduate from the Rainbow Graphics & Interaction Group at the University of Cambridge’s Computer Laboratory, where my PhD was supervised by Neil Dodgson. After graduation, I interned at Disney Research Zurich with Alexander Sorkine-Hornung working on stereoscopic panoramas. During my PhD, I also visited the MPI Informatik for half a year to work with Christian Theobalt on RGBZ videos. In 2007, I have received a BA (Honours) from Cambridge, finishing third in the year. I enjoy teaching and supervising student projects – many of which have received project prizes at Cambridge.
My research interests lie broadly in the fields of computer graphics, image processing and computer vision, with a focus on stereoscopic vision and graphics, as well as non-photorealistic rendering (NPR). More broadly, I am also interested in computational photography, image-based rendering, human visual perception and viewing comfort, and structure-from-motion.
During my PhD, I investigated the role of coherent depth in NPR, as both an input modality and in terms of assessing stereoscopic viewing comfort. A central component of my work were RGBZ videos, and in my dissertation I consider the full life cycle of these videos: from their acquisition, via filtering and processing, to stereoscopic display.
