Graphics Research Page

I enjoy advancing research in computer graphics with current focus on real-time rendering, including neural rendering, perceptual rendering, shading and appearance, as well as differentiable rendering. My research is used in Nvidia's middleware and RTX hardware, game engines (UE4, Unity, CryEngine) and games, and in Pixar's RenderMan. My PhD is on light transport simulation, also a former gamedev at Crytek.
