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 and AI with focus on realistic digital humans. Currently, I am a Senior Research Scientist at NVIDIA with focus on both realistic digital humans synthesis and trustworthy visual computing including detection and prevention of visual misinformation, some 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.
Internship at NVIDIA
We are hiring research interns. If you are interested in the intersection of Graphics and Deep Learning for realistic image/video/3D synthesis and relevant forgery detection and prevention techniques, please send me an email.
