I am a recent PhD from MIT CSAIL, now working as a principal software engineer at Kniterate, Inc. where I develop digital tools for computational weft knitting and on-demand garment production.
Until now, I worked as a research assistant in the Computational Design and Fabrication Group of Professor Wojciech Matusik.
Previously, I obtained a bachelor and master's degrees from EPFL where I worked in the Computer Graphics and Geometry laboratory of Professor Mark Pauly.
My interests span digital and physical fabrication, computer graphics and vision, machine learning and HCI.
