We are looking for motivated researchers interested in designing novel cameras and algorithms. If your interests and shared values align, see below for how to join us!
Prospective PhD students
I'm looking to hire several PhD students to start in Fall 2024. If you’d like to work with me, apply directly to the CS department and mention my name in your application. I look forward to talking to you once you are admitted!
The PhD program is fully funded (check out an estimate of the CS stipends vs. cost of living in Ithaca here), but I also recommend all PhD students to apply to graduate fellowships since this will give you more flexibility throughout your PhD. For domestic students, the most common fellowships are the NSF GRFP and the NDSEG. For a broader list of fellowships, please see Cornell's page on graduate fellowships and this curated list of CS fellowships.
Excellent postdoctoral candidates are encouraged to email me with the subject line including the words "Prospective Postdoc" to discuss current openings. In your email please include:
Your CV with a publication list
Short description of past and future research interests
Names and contact info of 2 academic references
I encourage you to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship and am happy to work with you on this.
Current Cornell students
If you're currently a PhD student at Cornell and you're interested in the lab, send me an email with the subject line "Current PhD Student" and the information below:
Your CV and list of classes taken.
A brief description of why you are interested in the lab.
Experience or background (if any) in computational imaging, optics, signal processing, computer vision, or machine learning. Prior experience is not a prerequisite, but knowing your background can help with finding a fit.
Please indicate whether you will need funding or not.
I will be looking for undergraduate students to work with starting in Fall 2024. Check back in summer 2024 for more information.
