Personal Information
Research My main research interests include
  • Monte Carlo, Quasi-Monte Carlo, and Randomized Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods,
  • Computer Graphics, and
  • Photorealistic Rendering Algorithms
Take a look at some images rendered with our Metropolis Light Transport algorithm.
Also have look at
Project Faster numerical algorithms for photorealistic image synthesis
