Vincent Sitzmann

Assistant Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Vincent Sitzmann is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, where he leads the Scene Representation Group. Previously, he was a postdoctoral associate at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. His research interest lies in neural scene representations — the way neural networks learn to represent information about our world. The Sitzmann lab will investigate neural scene representations, inverse graphics, neural rendering, and their applications in vision, graphics, robotics, and AI. His goal is for independent agents to reason about our world given only a few visual observations, a task that is simple for humans, but currently impossible for AI. Sitzmann received a PhD in electrical engineering and an MS in computer science from Stanford University, and a BS in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Munich in Germany.
