Assistant Professor
Computer Science
Texas A&M University
Aggie Graphics Group


Prior to this appointment at Texas A&M University, I enjoyed two years as an assistant professor at California Polytechnic State University. Before that, I was a post-doctoral fellow at Disney Research Boston and the MIT Computational Design and Fabrication Group. I received my Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia. My main research area is computer graphics, specializing in physically based modeling, biomechanical simulation, and computational fabrication. I am a recipient of an NSF CAREER award.
