I am a PhD student of Marc Pollefeys at ETH Zurich. My research is at the intersection of computer graphics and computer vision. My doctoral research has been on novel representations for images that allow easier analysis of photographs with applications to realistic image editing and movie post-production.
I was at MIT CSAIL for a year, visiting Wojciech Matusik's group and also collaborating with Sylvain Paris. I spent the first 3 years of my PhD at Disney Research Zurich. Previously, I was a research and teaching assistant at METU, where I obtained my MSc and BSc degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
