My name is Tim Brooks and I aspire to use technology to enable people to create, experience and share moving artwork. I am most fascinated by how machines represent perceptual concepts such as motion, tonality and quality. In fall 2019, I will begin my PhD at Berkeley AI Research, where I will study under Alyosha Efros.
As an engineer at Google AI, I am humbled to work as part of an extraordinary research group led by Marc Levoy, where my projects intersect machine learning and computational photography. I am fortunate to have collaborated closely with Jon Barron during my time at Google, and I owe the start of my research career to Kayvon Fatahalian, who mentored me during my undergraduate at Carnegie Mellon University.
This website contains some of my original individual and collaborative works. My photography has landed awards from National Geographic, Nature's Best Photography and National Wildlife Federation. I have performed at the Beacon Theatre on Broadway in New York City, acted as the lead in Carnegie Mellon’s student-run musical, and received an international award for a cappella beatboxing.
I am passionate about my career in computer science and artificial intelligence, and ecstatic that it conjoins with my love for photography, film, and music. I welcome your comments and questions about my work.
