We are a team of researchers excited about building algorithms that perceive and understand our world.
Vincent Sitzmann Assistant Professor & Principal Investigator
Vincent is the principal investigator of the Scene Representation Group at MIT CSAIL, where he works as an assistant professor. Previously, he finished his PhD at Stanford University and a postdoc at MIT.
His research interest lies in neural scene representations — the way neural networks learn to represent information on our world.
Ana Dodik PhD Student
Ana Dodik is a PhD student and Presidential Fellow at MIT CSAIL working on neural representations for geometry processing.
Prior to joining MIT, she spent two years developing next-generation virtual presence at Meta. She graduated with a Master’s degree from ETH Zurich, where she spent a year collaborating with Disney Research Studios on problems at the intersection of machine learning and offline rendering. She also spent time as a research assistant at the Computer Vision and Geometry group at ETH Zurich and as a computer vision intern at Microsoft and Oculus.
David Charatan PhD Student
David will be a PhD student at MIT CSAIL, advised by Vincent.
He graduated from Brown University with an undergraduate degree in computer engineering and is currently working at Common Sense Machines in Cambridge.
George Cazenavette PhD Student
George is a first-year PhD student working with Prof. Antonio Torralba and Vincent.
He just finished his Master’s degree at Carnegie Mellon and previously did his undergrad at Louisiana Tech. He is interested in applying generative models to scene representations and neural rendering.
