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 Fabrication Group, working with Wojciech Matusik. I received my Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia under the supervision of Dinesh K. Pai. My main research area is computer graphics, specializing in physically based modeling, biomechanical simulations, and computational fabrication.
