Kalyan Sunkavalli

I am a Research Scientist at Adobe Research, where I have worked since 2012.

I was a Ph.D. student in the Graphics, Vision, and Interaction group at Harvard University and was advised by Hanspeter Pfister. Before that, I did my Masters in Computer Science at Columbia University where I was advised by Ravi Ramamoorthi. Even before that, I graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi with a Bachelor of Technology in Electrical Engineering.

My research interests lie at the intersection of Computer Graphics and Computer Vision; in particular, my work focuses on understanding different aspects of visual appearance in images and videos, and building tools that enable users to easily edit and enhance them.
