Brevin Tilmon

Hello, I'm Brevin Tilmon. I'm currently a Senior Software Engineer at Quidient building a photorealistic scene reconstruction engine. I received my PhD in computer vision from the Florida Optics and Computational Sensor Lab at the University of Florida where I was advised by Sanjeev Koppal. My background is in software engineering and research for computer graphics, computer vision, and machine learning. I also have extensive experience in computational photography software and hardware.

During my PhD I did research scientist internships at Snap Research Computational Imaging Team with Sizhuo Ma and Jian Wang, Meta Reality Labs 3D Sensing Team with Shuochen Su, and NASA Intelligent Robotics Group with Uland Wong. I have published computer vision papers in CVPR, ICCV, PAMI, 3DV, and ICCP.

Some notable things I do in my free time include hardware hacking, tweaking SOTA machine learning models for fun applications, dirt biking, and reading (textbooks, scifi, history). I am currently based out of Columbia, Maryland. Feel free to reach me at, and here is my GitHub and Google Scholar.
