My research spans all aspects of virtual and augmented environments: spanning 3D user interfaces for social media (Social Street View), 4D video based rendering (Montage4D and Video Fields), foveated rendering (KFR), gestures (VRSurus), and visualization. Previously, I interned at Microsoft Research on Holoportation (4D reconstruction). I also worked at Makeability Lab, HCIL advised by Prof. Jon Froehlich on tangible interfaces (AtmoSPHERE), real-time OCR with haptics feedback (HandSight), and curb ramp recognition (Tohme). I am passionate about inventing future interactive technologies with computer graphics, 3D vision, and HCI. Feel free to visit my ShaderToy page for fun demos!
