Deepali is a Research Engineer at Adobe Research. She finished her Ph.D. in computer science at the University of Washington, and her thesis focused on developing learning-based techniques for facial animation.

She is interested in applying machine learning techniques to create new creative tools and interactive user experiences by leveraging multimodal information (text, audio, visual). Her past research and engineering have been recognized by an Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering (2020), two Adobe MAX Sneaks Demos (2020, 2021), and an Adobe Research Fellowship (2018). She is also on the executive committee for ACM WiGraph and organized the very first Rising Stars Workshop at SIGGRAPH 2022.

She is always looking for interns and collaborators to work on exciting research projects. Please feel free to reach out to learn more.
