Lukas Murmann

I'm a PhD Candidate at MIT where I am advised by Prof. Fredo Durand. My research focus is on Computer Graphics and Computational Photography.


More about me

Before coming to MIT, I received a MSc in Computer Graphics from UCL and a BSc in Electrical Engineering from TUM.
I'm interested in entrepreneurship. As an undergraduate, I co-founded a company that created and distributed study materials for college students. Since arriving in Cambridge, I have been taking Chinese language classes, first with the MIT language program, then at Harvard, over time reaching advanced proficiency. There still is a long way to go, but learning a language as an adult has been a rewarding journey already. In 2016, served as the co-president of the MIT EECS Graduate Student Association and in 2015 helped organize the EECS visit days for prospective PhD students.
