As of September 2009, I have been working at Google, on Google Earth. As of June 2010, I will have graduated from Princeton.

I was a graduate student at Princeton, in the Computer Science department, and in the graphics group from September 2004 until September 2009. My advisor was Thomas Funkhouser. I have worked on analysis of 3D shapes, namely object recognition, segmentation, symmetry detection/visualization, face modeling, finding binding sites in proteins, and using symmetry for geometry processing applications.

My CV can be found here.
