I'm a PhD student in Information Science at Cornell, where I’m advised by François Guimbretière. I'm working in HCI and specifically interested in designing remote collaboration technologies that support dynamic design activities such as brainstorming, design critique, and prototyping.

During my intern at Microsoft Research in Redmond, I collaborated with Andy Wilson, Bala Kumaravel, and Nicolai Marquardt, working on a remote collaboration system using NeRF techniques.
