I am a Ph.D. student at UC Irvine's Department of Computer Science. I currently conduct research within the intersection of biomedical image processing, geometric processing, and deep learning with the iGravi graphics lab, under the advisement of Professor Gopi Meenakshisundaram.
My research interests include computer graphics & animation, geometric processing, machine learning, vision, and image processing.
I have been serving as a DECADE PLUS Leadership Coach since 2019, where I specialize in outreach, mentoring, and leadership for first-generation, under-represented undergraduate student scholars. Additionally, I am a current TA for UCI's ICS 32A (Accelerated Programming with Software Libraries) for the 2020 fall quarter.
I attended UCSD for my undergraduate, and majored in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Cognitive Science (specializing in the Human-Computer Interaction sub-field). During my time there, I assisted in conducting research with UCSD's Department of Cognitive Science, with focus on research projects relating to social robotics, animal-robot interaction, and pro-social reciprocity in rodent behavior within Professor Andrea Chiba’s laboratory.
