Hi, I am Misha.

I am a graduate student in the Fluid Interfaces group at the MIT Media Lab. I work at the intersection of virtual reality, machine learning and computer vision exploring the design of novel ways to easily and automatically create 3D virtual environments. I am also very interested in the use of natural movement techniques and collaboration between geographically distributed users in VR. I enjoy doodling, taking photos and playing video games. I also enjoy glass blowing and kyudo.

I spent the summer of 2016 at Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK and worked on the Hololens. In July 2016, I got the amazing opportunity to work aboard the research vessel Nautilus on an Open Ocean Science project with Don Blair and Dhruv Jain. During 2014-2015, I was an RWJF Fellow with the Wellbeing Initiative at the Media Lab. You can contact me at "lastname" at media dot mit dot edu.
