Ruofei Du and Amitabh Varshney
Welcome! I am a Ph.D. student at the Dept. of Computer Science, University of Maryland, College Park (UMD). I am working as a UMIACS Graduate Research Assistant advised by Prof. Varshney at the Augmentarium, working on all aspects of virtual and augmented environments, spanning 3D user interfaces for social city (Social Street View), 4D content acquisition and rendering (Video Fields), tracking and registration. Previously, I worked in the Makeability Lab of the HCIL advised by Prof. Jon Froehlich where I published two projects on AtmoSPHERE (CHI'15 WiP) and HandSight (TACCESS'16, ACCESS'15, ECCV'14 Workshop), and contributed to Tohme (UIST 2014). My major research interests are inventing future interactive technologies, thus including interactive 3D graphics, HCI and computer vision. Feel free to watch my Youtube list for exciting demos!
- 7/24/16: Social Street View won the Best Paper Award at Web3D 2016!
- 7/18/16: Social Street View and Video Fields project pages are published!
- 5/23/16: Started my internship at the I3D a.k.a. Holoportation Group in Microsoft Research, Redmond.
- 4/6/16: 39-page journal paper on HandSight is accepted in TACCESS.
I got my M.S. in May 2015. Prior to UMD, I got my B.S. degree from ACM Class, Computer Science at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). I served as the vice president of the ACM Class and a undergraduate research assistant in BCMI Lab. From Jul. 2012 to Feb. 2013, I worked as a full-time intern at Microsoft Research Asia working on 3DVAR: From 3D reconstruction To Virtual and Augmented Reality while serving as the Chief Technology Officer at the ARD Intern Community of Microsoft Asia-Pacific Research & Development Group.
