I'm a 1st year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Brown University. My advisor is Prof. Srinath Sridhar. My research interests are 3D computer vision, computer graphics, and machine learning. I obtained my Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Toronto in 2018. After graduation, I had been working at Google Research for two years and I had the honor to collaborate with Dr. Ameesh Makadia and Prof. Noah Snavely. Then, I worked as a research engineer in perception at Gatik, an autonomous delivery startup.

During my undergrad study, I worked as a research assistant under the supervision of Prof. Sanja Fidler and I also worked on deep learning in animation and robotic perception as an intern at NVIDIA.
