Curriculum Vitae

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 ICCV and co-lectured an MIT class titled "mathematical methods in imaging". During his PhD he has interned at Microsoft Research in Seattle WA and Mitsubishi Electric (MERL) in Cambridge MA. He has won several awards, most recently, the 2016 Lemelson-MIT student prize.
