I am a Ph.D student at UNC-Chapel Hill currently studying near-eye and 3D displays under Prof. Henry Fuchs in a research group that is part of the BeingThere International Research Centre for Tele-Presence and Tele-Collaboration. My research interests include near-eye displays, 3D displays, 3D acquisition systems, computer graphics, computer vision, and augmented and virtual reality. During the summers of 2013 & 2014, I interned at NVIDIA Research. During the spring of 2012, I visited the Camera Culture Group of the MIT Media Lab. Previously I worked at Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems.

I am currently working as a Research Scientist at Oculus Research (Facebook).
