Alex Raistrick

I am a first year Ph.D student in Computer Science at Princeton University, working with Jia Deng as part of the Princeton Vision & Learning Lab.

I completed my undergrad in computer science at the University of Michigan, where I was fortunate to work with David Fouhey and members of the Fouhey AI Lab on weakly supervised scene understanding. Previously, I also researched 3D visualization for VR with Michael Nebeling in the Michigan Information Interaction Lab
