Toby Chong

I am a 2nd year PhD student at the University of Tokyo, under the supervision of Takeo Igarashi. My research centres around interactive experiences, virtual and augmented reality. In particular, I am interested in working on face and garment related projects.

I received my MSc in Creative Informatics working with Takeo Igarashi and BEng in Electrical Engineering working with Koji Yatani, both from the University of Tokyo.

Outside academia, I work with companies to develop consumer and studio oriented facial capture technologies.

Here is my CV (pdf, google drive).

Currently I am working on realistic cosmetic reproduction for virtual make-up, but I have worked on a mix of HCI/CG/ML projects.

Besides working, I enjoy science-based contents about cooking, training and investing.
