I am a computer science PhD student at the University of Washington, in the Sampa group. My advisors are Luis Ceze and Mark Oskin.

My research is at the intersection of computer architecture and computational photography. I like to build systems that involve hardware and software for visual applications, like continuous mobile vision or virtual reality cameras.

Before grad school, I studied computer engineering and English literature at Columbia University.
