Graduate Fellow: Soham Uday Mehta (2014)

Soham Uday Mehta, from Nagpur, India

Studying at the University of California, Berkeley

Soham’s research focuses on using signal processing ideas like frequency analysis to understand the light fields in rendering, and develop faster algorithms for rendering photo-realistic images. Through the use of adaptive sampling and filtering on the GPU, his algorithm can produce accurate images with depth of field and area light direct and illumination at least 30x faster.
