I am a Distinguished Research Scientist and a Manager with NVIDIA Research. My research group focuses on deep generative models and their applications. We have created several high-impact research works in the space of visual content synthesis, including pix2pixHD, vid2vid, MoCoGAN, face-vid2vid, SPADE, GANcraft. Several of them have enabled exciting new applications, including NVIDIA Canvas and NVIDIA Maxine. I served as an area chair for various prestiguous AI conferences such as NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, CVPR, ICCV, and ECCV. I have also won several major awards in my field. My research goal is to enable machine human-like imagination capability. I am looking for self-motivated researchers to join my team. Please contact me if you are also passionate about generative models and their applications.

Prior to NIVIDA, I was a Principal Research Scientist with Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL). I received my Ph.D. degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA, in 2012, advised by Prof. Rama Chellappa.
