I am a Ph.D. student at MIT working with Professor Bill Freeman and Professor Antonio Torralba in CSAIL (Computer Science and Atrificial Intelligence Laboratory). My research interests are in computer vision, computer graphics and computational photography.

I received a BA. in Math and Computer Science from Smith College in 2000. There I worked with Professor Joseph O'Rourke in the area of computational geometry. In 2005, I received an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Washington. Before coming to MIT, I spent several years working as a Software Design Engineer at Microsoft.
