Xiuming Zhang 张修明

I am a Ph.D. student advised by Prof. William T. Freeman in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I work in the fields of computer vision and computational photography, with particular interests in vision for graphics, vision as inverse graphics, and 3D computer vision. Prior to getting my S.M. from MIT, I graduated with a B.Eng. from National University of Singapore (NUS), where I did my thesis on Bayesian modeling of brain disorder heterogeneity with Prof. B.T. Thomas Yeo.
