  • SIGGRAPH 2020

    Gordon Wetzstein is an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and, by courtesy, of  Computer Science at Stanford University. His research has widespread applications in next- generation imaging, display, wearable computing, and microscopy systems. Prior to joining Stanford, he was a Research Scientist in the Camera Culture Group at MIT. He received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UBC. He is the recipient of an NSF CAREER Award, an  Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, an ACM SIGGRAPH Significant New Researcher Award, a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, an SPIE Early Career Achievement  Award, and several other awards.  

    SIGGRAPH 2014

    Gordon is a Research Scientist in the Camera Culture Group at the MIT Media Lab. His research focuses on computational imaging and display systems as well as computational light transport. His research has been  funded by DARPA, NSF, Samsung, and other grants from industry sponsors and research councils. In 2006, Gordon graduated with Honors from  the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany, and he received a Ph.D. in Computer  Science from the University of British Columbia in 2011. His doctoral dissertation focuses on computational light modulation for image acquisition and display and won the Alain Fournier Ph.D. Dissertation Annual Award.  He organized the IEEE 2012 and 2013 International Workshops on Computational Cameras and Displays, founded displayblocks.org as a forum  for sharing computational display design instructions with the DIY community, and presented a number of courses on Computational Displays  and Computational Photography at ACM SIGGRAPH. Gordon won the best paper award for ”Hand-Held Schlieren Photography with Light Field Probes” at ICCP 2011 and a Laval Virtual Award in 2005.  

    SIGGRAPH 2012

    Gordon Wetzstein is a Postdoctoral Associate at the MIT Media Lab. His research interests include light field and high dynamic range displays, projector-camera systems, computational optics, computational  photography, computer vision, computer graphics, and augmented reality. Gordon received a Diploma in Media System Science with Honors from the Bauhaus-University Weimar in 2006 and a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia in 2011. His doctoral dissertation  focuses on computational light modulation for image acquisition and dis- play. He is co-chairing the first workshop on Computational Cameras and  Displays at CVPR 2012, is serving in the general submissions committee at SIGGRAPH 2012, has served on the program committees of IEEE ProCams 2007 and IEEE ISMAR 2010, won a Laval Virtual Award in 2005 for his  work on projector-camera systems, and a best paper award for “Hand- Held Schlieren Photography with Light Field Probes” at the International  Conference on Computational Photography in 2011, introducing light field probes as computational displays for computer vision and fluid mechanics applications.
