Brian Price

Senior Research Scientist

Creative Intelligence Lab, San Jose

Brian is a researcher in the Adobe Research Labs working in computer vision. He received his PhD degree in computer science from Brigham Young University in 2010, and his adviser was Dr. Bryan Morse. His PhD research focused on interactive image segmentation and matting in images and videos. Before that, he received his masters degree from the same institution under the guidance of Dr. William Barrett.

Brian joined Adobe in 2010 after completing his graduate work. His research interests include image and video segmentation and matting, interactive vision methods, stereo, and other computer vision fields, and well as broad interest in computer graphics and machine learning.
