About

Xiuming Zhang 張修明

I'm currently a Senior Machine Learning Scientist at , working on 3D computer vision, neural rendering, and NeRF. Before , I worked on computational photography at Emerging Products Group. I did my Ph.D. in computer vision and computer graphics with at . During , I also received mentorship from via internships at . My dissertation studies inverse rendering and its applications, including 3D shape reconstruction and free-viewpoint relighting. Here is a more formal, third-person bio.
