I am a BAIR postdoc at UC Berkeley adviced by Jitendra Malik, Alyosha Efros and Trevor Darrell.
Since then I've had the pleasure to work with:
My work focuses on 3D reconstruction of animals including humans from single-view images. I work with animals because I am interested in how to represent non-rigid 3D shapes that deform and articulate. In particular I'm interested in how we can build a model of non-rigid 3D shapes from 2D images or videos. Also, animal pictures are a lot of fun to work with.
I believe the key to solving this problem is having a strong prior on object pose and shape, which can resolve many of the ambiguities. I am also interested in exploring how deep learning methods can be used for building such models.
