I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Kyros Kutulakos, along with an M.Sc. in 2009.

I received an undergraduate degree in honours Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of British Columbia in 2007. My honours thesis supervisors were Abhijeet Ghosh and Wolfgang Heidrich.

Companies I worked for include NVIDIA, EA, and MDA. I also did some work at SideFX as part of a software consulting course. I was also a visiting student at MIT Media Lab under the supervision of Ramesh Raskar.

Research

My research interest are in

  • computational photography and illumination
  • microscopy
  • appearance modeling
  • light transport simulation
  • numerical analysis
