Hey, welcome to my homepage! My name is Koki Nagano (in Kanji, my first name means “Lighting”, and “Hope”). I work at the intersection of Computer Graphics, Vision and AI. Currently, I am a Senior Research Scientist at NVIDIA. My research focuses on realistic digital humans synthesis, neural media synthesis and trustworthy visual computing including detection and prevention of visual misinformation in collaboration with DARPA. My PhD thesis focused on the topic of high-fidelity 3D human capture (USC, 2017), and I was supervised by Prof. Paul Debevec at USC ICT. Previously I was a Principal Scientist at Pinscreen Inc. During my PhD, I worked for Weta Digital on Hollywood blockbuster movies and for the Meta Reality Labs in Pittsburgh. I got my Bachelor of Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology with focus on Environmental Design.
