I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. My primary research includes texture modeling, material modeling, data acquisition, and data analysis.
I obtained my PhD in Computer Graphics at Yale University. Projects included systems for automatic extraction of textures from natural images, as well as low cost material acquisition systems. You can find an interactive demonstration of some of my work on the Graphic’s Group’s online tool.
Previously I worked at the Microwave Laboratory at Queens College, CUNY, where I studied the evolution of speckle patterns from a superposition of random waves. In particular, I investigated the statistics of the evolution of phase singularities.
I also designed the Yale CS Cloud, a new multipurpose research compute cloud that is currently under construction. It has already been used in multiple papers, including my own. I am currently working on building a new research cloud at NYU.
