I have completed my Ph.D in 2016. I am now working as a research scientist at light. During my Ph.D, I have worked on example based image restoration and synthesis problems with my advisor James Hays. In 2014, I spent the summer with the Graphics group at Microsoft Research, Redmond. In 2012, I had the opportunity to work with Jue Wang and Sunghyun Cho as a summer intern at Adobe Research, Seattle.

My research interest lies in data-driven methods in computational photography and computer vision, with a focus on developing example-based, expressive image priors suitable for restoration and synthesis tasks.
