Hi! My name is Neerja Thakkar.
I’m a second year PhD student in EECS at UC Berkeley, where I am lucky to work with Hany Farid. I am interested in research in computer vision, computational photography, and digital forensics. I am supported by a Chancellor’s Fellowship from Berkeley and an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
I did my undergrad at Dartmouth, where I studied Computer Science and Mathematics, and had the pleasure of working with Chris Bailey-Kellogg, Wojciech Jarosz, and Neel Joshi at Microsoft Research. From 2019-2020, I was a visiting student at the University of Zaragoza’s Graphics and Imaging Lab on a Fulbright Research Scholarship to Spain.
PhD in EECS, 2025 (expected)
BA in Computer Science and Mathematics, 2019
