Graduate Student in Computer Graphics

Hello! I’m a third year graduate student in Computer Graphics at the University of Toronto, supervised by Prof. Eitan Grinspun.

My interests lie at the intersection of physics based animation and geometry processing. Specifically I like how the two can often intermingle in just the right way to provide rich features useful for shape analysis, motion discovery, simulation acceleration, and control over animated characters.

I recently received my Master’s degree at the University of Toronto, where I was co-supervised by Profs Eitan Grinspun and Alec Jacobson. Before that I received my Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at McGill University. This summer, I’m on an internship at Roblox Research, working with Dr. Derek Liu and Prof. Victor Zordan.
