About Me

I am a PhD student in Computer Science Department of UMass Amherst. My advisor is Professor Evangelos Kalogerakis. My research interests are in visual computing, the intersection of computer graphics, computer vision and machine learning. Currently, I am exploring how to apply data-driven approach to character animation workflow.
