I am a research advisor & research scientist at Drip Artificial where I am leading the research efforts into generative AI, synthesizing stylized videos given a text description, and propagating edits through the video sequence. I obtained my PhD in Computer Graphics at CTU in Prague under the supervision of prof. Daniel Sýkora. I hold BSc and MSc degrees in Computer Science from the same university. My entire research career has been revolving around generating realistically looking content given certain conditions. During my PhD I focused on research into style transfer -- generating realistically looking paintings and animated movies. I was fortunate to do two internships at Adobe Research, one at Snap Research, and one at Samsung Research America. Upon completing my PhD, I joined NEON at Samsung Research America as a senior research scientist where I spent more than 2 years focusing my research into computer vision techniques to generate virtual humans with a particular emphasis on photorealism.
Diffusion and generative models to synthesize stylized videos given a text description; including style transfer, video synthesis, propagating edits through the video sequence, implicit neural video representations. I am looking to establish collaboration with university research labs, PhD students, and potential PhD research interns!
