I am a Ph.D. student at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. I work with Prof. Daniele Panozzo on research in computer graphics, geometry processing, and digital fabrication. The goal of my research is designing algorithms to simplify and automate design processes, lowering the barrier of entry for 3D modeling and animation.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from George Mason University in 2017. While at GMU, I worked with Prof. Yotam Gingold as a member of the Creativity and Graphics Lab. Our work focused on texture mapping, modeling, and numerical optimization.
