About Me

I am a PhD Student in the School of Computing at the University of Utah. I am currently working with Dr. Ladislav Kavan on physics-based animation. I am also interested in numerical time integration and simulation of deformable bodies. I did a research internship at Disney Research Zürich in the summer of 2017, working in the Capture group. I previously received a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Florida and a Master of Science in Computer Science degree from Columbia University.
