I am an assistant professor leading the Realistic Graphics Lab at EPFL's School of Computer and Communication Sciences.
My research revolves around inverse graphics, material appearance modeling and physically based rendering algorithms. I am interested in simulations that produce realistic images of our world, to reconcile the resulting data with physical measurements, and to solve complex inverse problems using differentiable simulations. I have received the ACM SIGGRAPH Significant Researcher award, the Eurographics Young Researcher Award, and an ERC Starting Grant. My group develops the Mitsuba renderer, a research-oriented rendering system, and I am one of the authors of the third edition of Physically Based Rendering: From Theory To Implementation. As part of my research, I have created widely used open source frameworks, including pybind11, Instant Meshes (SGP Software Award recipient), NanoGUI, and Enoki.
Bio: I completed my Ph.D. at the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University, where I was advised by Steve Marschner. Before coming to EPFL, I was a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow at ETH Zürich's Interactive Geometry Lab, where I worked with Olga Sorkine-Hornung.
