I am currently a first year Ph.D student at CVIT, IIIT Hyderabad, supervised by Dr. P J Narayanan (Funded by the KCIS fellowship).
Previously, I completed my MS by research at IIIT Hyderabad, which is also where I completed my BTech in Computer Science Engineering.
My research involves playing around with the light transport equation for real-time performance, differentiable rendering and neural rendering (in other words, I work on Computer Vision/Computer Graphics and Machine Learning/Deep Learning.).

A Flexible Neural Renderer for Material Visualization

ACM SIGGRAPH Asia Technical Briefs, 2019

Photo realism in computer generated imagery is crucially dependent on how well an artist is able to recreate real-world materials in the scene. We propose a convolutional neural network based workflow which generates high-quality ray traced material visualizations on a shaderball, in real-time.
