Luchao Qi

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I work on computer vision and graphics with Roni Sengupta.

Previously, I was fortunate to work with Mohammad N. Ranjbar while I was a software engineer at ValtedSeq.

I received my M.S.E. in Biomedical Engineering & Data Science from Johns Hopkins University where I was advised by Brian Caffo. Before that, I received my B.S.E. in Biomedical Engineering from Northeastern University under the supervision of Ming Qian at Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology.

    I'm interested in generative AI, and personalization. Selected projects are listed below.
    Feel free to reach out if you are interested in collaborating.

    My3DGen: A Scalable Personalized 3D Generative Model

    We personalize a pretrained GAN-based model (EG3D) using a few (~50) selfies of an individual without full finetuning, enabling scalable personalization in a real-world scenario.
