Snehal Singh Tomar

CS Ph.D. student at Stony Brook University | Resume


Hello! I am a first-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Stony Brook University, working with Prof. Klaus Mueller and Prof. Dimitris Samaras. My research focuses on Interpretable Deep Generative Models for Computer Vision. I also explore Computational Photography and 3D Computer Vision. Additionally, I am an AI evangelist at SolveitNOW, a startup revolutionizing peer learning for K-12 students.

Previously, I was a pre-doctoral fellow with the Visual and Embodied AI group at TCS Research, working on 3D mesh animation using Self-Supervised Graph Neural Networks. I earned my MS in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, receiving the Institute Research Award. I conducted my research at the IPCV Lab with Prof. A.N. Rajagopalan. During my undergrad, I interned with Prof. Shubhendu Bhasin at IIT Delhi, focusing on Control Systems and Robotics. I was also part of my university’s AI Robotics Team, working on an autonomous car.
