NATASHA KHOLGADE

I am a 5th year Ph.D. student in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. I am advised by Yaser Sheikh. I received my M.S. and B.S. degrees in 2009 from the Department of Computer Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology under the supervision of Andreas Savakis.

My research lies at the intersection of computer graphics and computer vision. I am interested in understanding how we may leverage large databases of three-dimensional information, such as geometry, illumination, and textures, to represent and manipulate two-dimensional content such as photographs.

The image to the right shows the start of my failed attempt to make my origami crane fly during the Technical Papers Fast Forward at SIGGRAPH 2014. Our approach to manipulate photographed objects in 3D makes the origami crane in a photograph fly as shown in the banner image.

My work on 3D manipulation of objects in photographs has been featured by several news agencies:
