I am a Ph.D. student at EPFL studying Computer Science. My advisor is Professor Mark Pauly. My research focuses on Geometry, Optimization, Computational Fabrication, and Smart Materials. I am a member of WiGRAPH and RCDC@SIGGRAPH.

I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. During my undergraduate study, I worked on bouncing robots, ham sandwich theorem, tensegrity design, and phylogenetic tree spaces. Here is my website when I was at UIUC.
