Work Experience

Before joining CMU as a PhD student, I had the pleasure to work with these amazing groups of people!

Research Intern,
September 2021 - December 2021,

Supervisor: Prof. David Lindlbauer (Augmented Perception Lab, CMU HCII)
I worked on a project that enables virtual interface elements to be constantly visible without introducing visual clutter and distraction. The work is on the intersection of Virtual Reality, Computer Graphics and Geometry.

Summer Research Fellow,
July 2020 - August 2021,

Summer Geometry Institute (MIT Geometric Data Processing group, CSAIL)

1. 3D Shape Correspondence via Probabilistic Synchronization of Functional Maps and Riemannian Geometry, Supervisors: Prof. Nina Miolane and Dr. Tolga Birdal
2. Self-similarity loss for shape descriptor learning in correspondence problems, Supervisor: Dr. Tal Shnitzer.
3. Anisotropic Schrödinger Bridge, Supervisor: Prof. Justin Solomon. [Technical Report coming soon!]

Research Assistant,
November 2020 - January 2022,

Supervisor: Dr. Nazmus Saquib (Tero Labs, US)
I worked on 'Embodied Programming'. The main goal is to close the gap between symbolic and embodied cognition in math and computing, by designing pioneering technology in augmented reality, computer vision, and sketch interfaces.

Other than research, I am deeply fascinated by upcycling (which is creative reuse of waste to make crafts. See my artworks in the upcycling page.) My love for upcycling and computer science excites me to think of machines that have human-level creativity and exciting ways to advance education and art - which is one of the main motivations of my works. 🎨 💻 In my free-time, I enjoy reading webtoons.
