陳懷瑾 | Computational Imaging Lead, Vayu Robotics


I lead the computational imaging team at Vayu Robotics, where we aim to use novel imaging techniques and apparatus to improve the perception of autonomous vehicles.

Before Vayu, I was a senior research scientist and tech lead manager at SenseBrain Technology, where I worked with Jinwei Gu building an R&D team to solve challenging but exciting problem of computational photography on smartphones. Thanks to my excellent colleagues and interns, we are able to devise the state-of-the-art methods and datasets for under-display camera diffraction mitigation, time-of-flight 3D transient imaging, neural image compression, HDR night photography, and ISP pipeline for next-gen imaging sensors.

I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Rice University in 2019, supervised by Ashok Veeraraghaven, where my works are among the first to leverage deep learning alongside physics-based models to solve computational imaging problems. I received my B.S. in Imaging Science (Magna Cum Laude) from RIT in 2013.


Apr 2, 2023 I will co-host the CVPR 2023 Tutorial on Polarization-based Computer Vision.

Feb 28, 2023 Two papers, “TransFlow: Transformer as Flow Learner” and “Generating Aligned Pseudo-Supervision from Non-Aligned Data for Image Restoration in Under-Display Camera”, were accepted at CVPR 2023.
Oct 10, 2022 I’m looking for a research intern to work on polarization imaging for 🤖🚗. Please apply here if interested!
