I am a PhD student in computer science at MIT, where I work with Frédo Durand and Saman Amarasinghe. My work focuses on high-efficiency computer graphics, at the intersection of graphics with systems, architecture, and compilers. I am currently building a programming language and compiler for efficient image processing. I was previously in Pat Hanrahan's group at Stanford, have worked at all three major GPU vendors in architecture, software, compilers, and research, and built a real-time preview system for the special effects industry in collaboration with Industrial Light & Magic.
