I am currently a Research and Development Engineer at Industrial Light & Magic. My primary research interests are computer graphics and scientific computing. I am also interested in computer vision and machine learning.
I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science at Stanford University in 2016. I was advised by Professor Ron Fedkiw. I was fortunate to be supported by a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship during my graduate studies.
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.
