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 research interest lies at the intersection of Computer Vision, Computer Graphics and Machine Learning. I am interested in estimating intrinsic or intermediate representations of an image or a video, e.g. geometry, material, alpha matte, lighting, to enable several editing applications like compositing, relighting and object insertions.
