Soumyadip Sengupta 

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Computer Science & Engineering at University of Washington. I am working with Prof. Steve Seitz, Prof. Brian Curless and Prof. Ira Kemelmacher-Shlizerman in the UW Reality Lab and GRAIL.

I completed my Ph.D. (Aug 2013 - Jan 2019) from University of Maryland, College Park (UMD), advised by Prof. David Jacobs and my undergraduate degree (2009-2013) in ECE from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India.

I also had the pleasure to work with:

Research Interest

My interest lies at the intersection of Computer Vision, Computer Graphics and Machine Learning. My research deals with the problem of Inverse Graphics, i.e. recovering the underlying geometry, reflectance and illumination properties of a scene, from a limited number of observations. I am interested in using physics-based vision and large amount of labeled synthetic and unlabeled real world images in a learning based framework. I am also excited to produce really cool Augmented and Virtual Reality experiences using these ideas.
