Short Bio: Achuta Kadambi works at the intersection of computer science and optics. A key aim is to overcome traditional challenges in computer vision by leveraging joint design of optical capture and computational processing. Kadambi has taught courses on computational photography and light transport at SIGGRAPH and co-instructed a course at MIT on inverse problems in imaging. During his PhD he has interned at Microsoft Research in Seattle WA and Mitsubishi Electric (MERL) in Cambridge MA.

Related topics on Polarization: see also, my colleague Vage Taamazyan's startup and earlier work from Atkinson, Boult, Debevec, Ghosh, Miyazaki, Schechner. It may be interesting to look at polarized imaging for multipath analysis (A. Wallace's 1999 IJCV paper is a starting point).
