About Me


I am a research engineer in the Creative Technologies Lab at Adobe. I primarily do software development on new computer graphics technologies, but I also occasionally do some computer graphics research, primarily in animation and geometry. Previously I was a Ph.D. student in computer graphics at the University of Washington under Zoran Popović.
