I graduated! You can now find me at Harvey Mudd College.

From 2009 to 2017 I was a PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford University, where my advisor was Pat Hanrahan. I did my undergraduate degree at Caltech, where I studied under Mathieu Desbrun in the Applied Geometry Lab. Go Beavers! I am currently investigating the features of traditional 2D cinema that influence saccadic motion of the human eye. My other research interests include applied geometry and advanced sampling methods.
