About Me

I have graduated with a B.A. in Physics and Mathematics from Cornell University in 2007. Then I joined the Program of Computer Graphics to pursue my M.S. degree under the supervision of Don Greenberg and Alexander Vladimirsky. I have successfully defended my thesis in May, 2010.

Currently, I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Graphics at the University of Utah. I joined the Hardware Ray Tracing Group during the Fall of 2011 and am working on rendering algorithms and ray tracing hardware under the supervision of Erik Brunvand.

During the 2010 - 2011 academic year, I worked on automatic quad meshing under the supervision of Valerio Pascucci at the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute.
