Resume [pdf] (Updated January 2022)

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, advised by Rahul Narain. My research interests are physics-based animation, geometry processing, and numerical optimization.

I received my M.S. and B.S. in Computer Science at the University of Minnesota Duluth. At UMD I was advised by Pete Willemsen and my thesis was on efficient simulations of urban heat.
