I'm a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at George Mason University working under the mentorship of Professor Lap-Fai (Craig) Yu. Prior to venturing into the world of PhD life, I received an MEng. (Master's of Engineering) in Computer Science from Cornell University and an MS (Master's of Science) from the University of Massachusetts-Boston.
Research interests: Computational Design, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, Graphics, Vision, Machine Learning and HCI.

Apart from doing research. In my spare time I enjoy: hiking, yoga, cooking, knitting and exploring the local rock scene.
When at home, I like to pester my cat Ada Lovelace.
