Research Scientist

Creative Intelligence Lab, San Jose

Kalyan is a research scientist at Adobe Research.

He completed his Ph.D. at Harvard University in 2012, where he was a member of the Graphics, Vision, and Interaction group and was advised by Hanspeter Pfister. He received an M.S. in computer science from Columbia University in 2006 and a B.Tech. in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi in 2003.

His research interests lie at the intersection of graphics, computer vision, and image processing; in particular, his work focuses on understanding different aspects of visual appearance, and building tools that enable users to easily edit and enhance them in images and videos.
