Hello! I am Bindita Chaudhuri. I am a 3rd year Ph.D. student in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Washington. I work in the Graphics and Imaging Laboratory under the guidance of Prof. Linda Shapiro. I also collaborate with Alex Colburn, Barbara Mones and Gary Faigin.

My research interests are in the fields of computer vision, machine learning, computer graphics and computational photography. At present, I am working on the development of a cyber-human system using deep neural networks that automatically maps human expressions from 2D input to multiple 3D stylized characters with the aim of improving immersive VR/AR/MR storytelling and helping autistic kids to convey emotions easily. Apart from studies, I love playing synthesizer, listening to music and swimming. Thank you for visiting my webpage.

Previously, I completed my Masters in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay under the guidance of Prof. Subhasis Chaudhuri in 2016 and received my Bachelors degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering from Jadavpur University under the guidance of Prof. Iti Saha Misra in 2014.

Work Experience
Research Intern (March 2018 - Present)

Visual Intelligence group, Microsoft Research (Redmond, WA)

Designed a multi-task deep learning framework to transfer performance of single or multiple human faces captured with a 2D camera to 3D animated characters in real time.

Graduate Intern Technical (Summer 2017)

Computational Imaging Lab, Intel Labs (Santa Clara, CA)

Designed convolutional neural networks to perform optical flow prediction and image super-resolution for efficient view synthesis from high-definition multi-camera array images

Visiting Researcher (Summer 2015)

Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, University of Trento (Trento, Italy)

Worked with Prof. Lorenzo Bruzzone and Prof. Begum Demir on novel unsupervised and semi-supervised approaches to content-based retrieval of remote sensing images using an inexact graph matching strategy.
