About Me

*Update* I will be graduating from MIT this September and moving to Stanford University for my post-doctorate. I will update contact info soon.

I am a computer science PhD student at MIT working in computer graphics, computational photography, and computer vision. My adviser is Fredo Durand.

I've done a spattering of research on different topics. I'm probably best known for my work analyzing small vibrations in video - click on the Research tab to find out more.

I'm from Baltimore Maryland. I did my undergraduate at Stanford, where I worked with Marc Levoy on graphics and computational photography.

As a hobby I like to write, produce, and record music. Most of it is nerdy rap. For more on that, click the Music tab.

There is an Other tab. Right now it has some stuff about Caperture, an iOS app I wrote that lets you capture and view objects in 3D. I plan to add links to guest lectures and code in the near future.
