Ethan Tseng


I am a Computer Science PhD student at Princeton University advised by Felix Heide in the Princeton Computational Imaging Lab. I am broadly interested in computer vision and graphics with a focus on computational imaging and displays. My research involves light, optics, image signal processors, machine learning, and optimization. I explore next generation camera and display systems for smartphones, medical practice, autonomous vehicles, and virtual/augmented reality. I am a recipient of the Google PhD Fellowship.

I have interned with Marc Levoy's NextCam team at Adobe in 2021/2022 and at Aswin Sankaranarayanan's Image Science Lab at Carnegie Mellon University in 2017. My research paper in Nature Communications has been highlighted by Optics & Photonics News as a breakthrough in optics and featured in international media, such as Vice News, BBC, NSF Discovery, IEEE Future Directions, and Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show.
