About me

I am a third-year Ph.D. student advised by Justin Solomon at MIT CSAIL and a 2023-2024 recipient of the MathWorks Fellowship. My current research is focused on developing numerical methods for partial differential equations and advancing applications of these PDE in computer graphics and geometry processing. During my graduate studies, I had the generous support of a Schwarzman College of Computing Fellowship funded by Google Inc. and a MIT Distinguished Graduate Fellowship in EECS.


In the past, I collaborated with Alec Jacobson at the University of Toronto and our work was published at ACM Transactions on Graphics. I have also worked under the mentorship of Matheus Gadelha at Adobe Inc. on a pipeline to generate 3D scenes from single images. Before coming to MIT, I graduated cum laude with a bachelor's degree in mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles.

If you are a student from an underrepresented group looking for advice on pursuing research in math or computer science, I'd be happy to help you and share resources. Reach out!

The best way to contact me is by sending me an email.
