I grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and due to my passion for the outdoors, I love it here. Feel free to see a gallery
of some of my photos. I am passionate about outdoors activites such as running, kayaking, snowskiing, hiking, and mountain biking. I also like environmental protection, animal rights, whole plant foods
, following lifestyle medicine
guidelines, higher education and the scientific process such as encountered in doctoral programs, and living a sustainable, low-carbon lifestyle working for green companies
. Happily, Adobe does a pretty good job in terms of sustainability
My career has focused on computer science research with numerous Adobe and academic collaborators, and particularly on algorithms used by photographers. Currently, I work mainly on computer graphics and vision topics, such as image and video processing, texture, deep learning for image tasks, and domain specific languages especially for shaders. I organize an Adobe initiative called ICE: Image Inpainting, Clean-up, and Extrapolation, where we focus on research and development related to those image editing topics.
For the years 2013-2017, I was an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Virginia.
