I am a PhD student at NYU's Immersive Computing Lab, advised by Prof. Qi Sun. Prior to starting my studies here in Spring 2021, I received my BS and MEng degrees in Computer Science and Engineering at MIT in 2018 and 2019 respectively. During my time at MIT, I was part of the Computer Graphics Group at CSAIL, and was advised by Prof. Fredo Durand. Although young and immature as a researcher, I've found interest in exploring various topics in perceptual computer graphics, AR/VR, esports, computational photography, inverse rendering, light transport, and more. I hope to both refine and broaden the scope of my research interests to shape a more cohesive and directed academic career in the years to come.
