| I am a research scientist at Adobe, and an affiliate associate professor at the University of Washington's Computer Science & Engineering
department, where I completed my Ph.D. in 2006; my advisor was David
Salesin. My areas of research are computer graphics, computer vision, and computational imaging. Specifically, I research machine learning techniques that help us author more expressive imagery. I recently spend five years at Google focusing on automatic photography, and lead the team that developed the AI behind Google Clips.
Before that I spent nine years after my Ph.D. at Adobe Research. I also spent three summers during my Ph.D. interning at Microsoft Research, and my time at UW was supported by a Microsoft fellowship.  Before UW, I worked for two years as a research scientist at the legendary but now-bankrupt Starlab, a small research company in Belgium. I completed my Masters and Bachelors at MIT majoring in computer science; while there I was a research assistant in the Computer Graphics Group, and an intern at the Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratory (MERL) . As an undergraduate I did research at the MIT Media Lab.
