I am currently a third-year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Stanford University advised by Professor Ron Fedkiw. I am fortunate to be supported by a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship. I am also currently consulting at Industrial Light & Magic.

My primary research interests are computer graphics and scientific computing. I am also interested in robotics and computer vision.

I graduated from Cornell University in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics and Computer Science. During my undergraduate career, I worked with Professor Tomas Arias in the Department of Physics in computational ab initio physics and electrochemistry. I was also a member of the Cornell Personal Robotics group under the supervision of Professor Ashutosh Saxena where I implemented and adapted planning algorithms on a number of robotic arms.




In my (limited) spare time, I can usually be found jogging and biking around Stanford and Palo Alto, swimming at the Avery Aquatic Center, or taking photos.
