About Me


Hello, I'm Twaha! I'm a PhD student (2017 - Present) in UC Irvine's Computer Science Department.
I'm working with Prof. Aditi Majumder in the iGravi Lab. My research interests lie in the overlap of computer vision, graphics and visualization. My current research is in the domain of real-time multi-projector display systems that adapt to changing surface geometry and their application to projection-based augmented reality systems for creating interactive 3D experiences.
Before joining UC Irvine, I worked at Epic Systems, a healthcare software company, as a software developer on their surgical management team. In summer 2018, I had a great time at Google's Mobile Vision team working on face recognition.
I received my Master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University, where I was advised by Professor Tsuhan Chen. I did my bachelors in Computer Systems Engineering from NUST University.
