I am a Research Scientist at Adobe Research London working on image/3D/video generative modeling.

I received my PhD in Computer Science in 2023 from the Visual Computing Center at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology working with Prof. Peter Wonka.

I'm broadly interested in computer graphics, especially image and 3D synthesis and generative modeling techniques. My research involves the generation of large-scale images using deep neural networks, focusing on the quality of the generated content, controllability and the plausible compositing of the output.

In my spare time, I enjoy designing, building, creating, disassembling and assembling things. I love to play music, learn languages and explore the world.
