Peter F. Michael

Ph.D. Student. Computer Graphics & Vision


Hello! I’m an 2nd year Ph.D. Student at Cornell CS advised by Abe Davis.

Previously, I was a Master’s student at the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle, where I worked in GRAIL. I also completed my undergraduate degree (2018-2021) in computer engineering at the Allen School.

My interests lie broadly in the field of computational imaging, where I aim to codesign hardware (e.g., embedded systems, optics) and algorithms for various content creation-related tasks.


Jun 10, 2022 Completed my M.S. degree and won the Outstanding Senior Award and was nominated for the Dean’s Medal in the College of Engineering!
Sep 6, 2021 Started my research internship at Runway!
Jun 11, 2021 Graduated with a B.S. in Computer Engineering! :confetti_ball:
