Hi! I’m a senior undergraduate student at the University of Toronto, majoring in Computer Science and Mathematics. In parallel, I’ve been working as a research assistant at the Dynamic Graphics Project Lab, advised by Prof. Alec Jacobson. Currently I’m doing a summer internship at Adobe Research under Dr. Qi Sun.
I’m broadly interested in geometry processing, physics-based animation, computational design and fabrication, visualization and interface technologies that augment users’ creativity and productivity.
Previously, I’ve explored different research areas with Prof. Ken Jackson on numerical analysis and with Prof. Fanny Chevalier on HCI / visualization. I also did research in geometric modeling with Prof. Marc Alexa and physics-based animation with Prof. David Levin and Prof. Alec Jacobson. It’s my great honour to be selected as a finalist for CRA Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award 2020 and an awardee for Adobe Research Women-in Technology Scholarship 2020.
