I'm PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at George Mason University working under the mentorship of Professor Lap-Fai (Craig) Yu. Prior to venturing into the world of PhD life, I received an MEng. (Master's of Engineering) in Computer Science from Cornell University and an MS (Master's of Science) from the University of Massachusetts-Boston.
I'm interested in using data as a mean to create usable AI assistants for content creators from all walks of life (video game designers, painters, comic book artist..etc). This involves blending the wonderful worlds of HCI, VR, Vision and Fabrication to produce functional data driven designs.
Research interests: Computational Design, Virtual Reality, Graphics, Vision, and HCI.
