My Curriculum Vitae

I'm an assistant professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah. I completed my Ph.D. in computer science at the University of California at Berkeley, where I worked in the Berkeley Computer Animation & Modeling group. I then spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow in the City of Bridges working in the Graphics Lab at Carnegie Mellon University.

My primary research interests are in computer graphics and animation, especially using physical simulation for computer animation. I am also interested in scientific computing, numerical methods, computational physics and computational geometry.
