I am a first-year PhD student at MIT CSAIL working with Prof. Erik Demaine. My research interests lie in computational geometry and geometry processing. I love learning about shapes and structures, particularly in the context of art, design, and fabrication.

I earned my B.Sc. from UBC, during which I was advised by Profs. Will Evans, Craig Kaplan, and Alla Sheffer. I was also fortunate to intern at Microsoft (2019, 2020), Cisco (2019), and BCCHR (2018).
