I am a PhD student in computer science at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am working in the GAMMA lab under the superivision of Dr. Dinesh Manocha. My research interests involve virtual reality, computer graphics, human perception, human-computer interaction, and non-photorealistic rendering.

I graduated with a B.S. with High Honors in Computer Science from Davidson College. During my time at Davidson, I worked in the DRIVE lab, where I was advised by Dr. Tabitha Peck. My undergraduate thesis studied redirected walking thresholds under different conditions and how we can efficiently estimate them.

In my free time, I mostly enjoy drawing and competitive video games (DotA 2 and Tetris).
