I'm a Ph.D. candidate in computer graphics working on physically-based modeling and animation. My goal is to provide graphics researchers and artists with a framework that can be easily accessed via a browser and used to create physically plausible and computationally efficient models and animation.
I believe a good movie can have great impact on its audience, and visually convincing effects can help enhance this experience. After graduation, I'd like to get a R&D position in the film industry where my knowledge and experiences will contribute to such a production team that makes good movies. My current goal is to sharpen my knowledge and skills in computer graphics.
Personally, I like being underestimated, because for those who care to find out more about me, they will be pleasantly surprised.
In July 2013, I founded my first technology startup.
When I have time away from research, business, skateboarding, theatre, and my lovely parents and friends, I volunteer for the American Red Cross blood services and disaster services. I'm currently a member on the Disaster Action Team (DAT) for the Baltimore City/Baltimore County region.
