Kai He (何开)

I am an incoming PhD student at the University of Toronto, supervised by Prof. Igor Gilitschenski. Currently, I am a senior-year undergraduate student at ShanghaiTech University majoring in computer science and technology. I am fortunate to work with Prof. Jingyi Yu and Prof. Lan Xu during my undergraduate studies. I also spent an exciting summer in 2023 at Carnegie Mellon University as a research intern advised by Prof. Sebastian Scherer.

My research interests lie in 3D vision, particularly 3D Reconstruction, Generation and Neural Rendering. My current research focuses on the high-quality 3D reconstruction and rendering of humans and common objects and large-scale scenes. Additionally, I am exploring techniques that allow humans to edit and interact with objects in virtual environments.
