I’m a Computer Science PhD student at UT Austin, advised by Etienne Vouga. Most recently I have been exploring the wild world of geometry processing, designing algorithms to study questions in computer graphics and computational fabrication. Prior to graduate school I designed and fabricated a circuit board which turned a widely avaliable lighting element into a touch sensor. Much of my time in graduate school has been spent studying questions in computational fabrication, including problems like, "How might one weave a bunny out of straight ribbons?", and "What shapes can one build out of squishy legos?".
Mint: Finding Frame Fields with Discretely Integrable Moments
We implement a novel discrete integrability operator for symmetric frame fields.
