Richard Zhang

Research Scientist

San Francisco

I am a Research Scientist at Adobe Research. My research interests are in computer vision, machine learning, deep learning, and sensor fusion. I was previously a PhD student at UC Berkeley, advised by Professor Alexei (Alyosha) Efros. I obtained my BS and MEng degrees from Cornell University in ECE. I also received the Adobe Fellowship Award in 2017.
