Mohammad Sina Nabizadeh

I'm a CS PhD student at UC San Diego and the Center for Visual Computing, where I work on computer graphics research.

At UC San Diego, my supervisors are professors Albert Chern and Ravi Ramamoorthi. I did my bachelors in computer engineering at the University of Waterloo, where I was advised by professor Christopher Batty at the Computational Motion Group.

I've received a silver medal at the International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics in 2014 and Canada Developer 30 Under 30 Award in 2018. I've been credited for two AAA games in 2020: Watch Dogs Legion at Ubisoft and Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War at Activision.

Publications

I'm interested in computer graphics, physics-based simulations, differential geometry, computational physics, rendering, and optimization.

Kelvin Transformations for Simulations on Infinite Domains
Mohammad Sina Nabizadeh, Ravi Ramamoorthi, Albert Chern
SIGGRAPH, 2021
project page / video / bibtex

We solve infinite-domain simulation problems by applying the Kelvin transform. The transformation turns infinite-domain PDEs into bounded-domain ones via a domain inversion and a singularity factorization.
