Maxine Perroni-Scharf

Hello! I'm Maxine, a computer science student with interests in computational fabrication, computer graphics and computer vision.

I am a first-year PhD student in EECS at MIT where I will be advised by Professor Mina Konaković Luković. I recently completed a research-based master's degree at Princeton University, where I am advised by Professor Szymon Rusinkiewicz and supported by an Assistantship in Instruction. I completed my undergrad at Dartmouth College, where I majored in Math and Computer Science, and minored in Digital arts. I was advised by Professor Devin Balkcom, and I also worked with Professor Xia Zhou in Dartnets Lab. In 2021, I spent a wonderful summer working as an intern at Adobe Research with Yannick Hold-Geoffroy, Kalyan Sunkavalli and J Eisenmann. In my free time, I love to make art!
