Senior R&D Engineer
Krishna Regmi is a senior R&D engineer on Kitware’s Computer Vision Team located in Carrboro, North Carolina. Krishna is involved in projects that involve satellite imagery analytics, for example, object detection in satellite imagery with low-shot learning.
Prior to joining Kitware, Krishna was a graduate research and teaching assistant at the University of Central Florida. His research focused on using Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) to generate images and videos from novel views as well as on image matching and video geolocalization. His work on cross-view image synthesis published at the Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) in 2018 introduced a novel computer vision problem to the research community.
While working on his Ph.D., Krishna led the National Geo-Spatial Agency (NGA) research project on image and video geolocalization. He developed a novel solution to cross-view image matching by leveraging generative models to synthesize cross-view images to bridge the domain gap between query ground and gallery aerial images. He was also a research scientist intern for Netflix where he worked on frame deblurring for the application of Personalized Artwork Creation.
Before earning his master’s degree, Krishna was a lecturer at the Kantipur Engineering College, Tribhuvan University, Nepal where he taught different undergraduate level courses.
Krishna received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Central Florida in 2021. In 2015, he received his master’s degree in electrical engineering from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Krishna received his bachelor’s degree in electrical and communication engineering from Tribhuvan University in Nepal in 2009 and he was a visiting undergraduate student at the University of Bradford from 2009-2010.

Get to Know Krishna
What made you want to become a Kitwarean? Since learning about Kitware at a computer vision conference in 2019, I have been fascinated by Kitware’s diverse and challenging computer vision research activities. Due to the very high overlap of my Ph.D. research with Kitware’s research, I was confident that Kitware was the right place for me to thrive.
What do you love most about what you do? I like to bring new perspectives and solutions to new and existing computer vision problems.
Share something interesting about yourself that is not on your resume. I love watching sports. I’m a big fan of tennis, soccer, football, and basketball. I enjoy mountains as much as I enjoy being on the beach.
