I am a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Yaser Sheikh at the Robotics Institute and Iain Matthews from Disney Research.

My research is in computer vision and graphics, and I am interested in the spatiotemporal modeling of 3D motion, particularly for natural and dynamic objects such as faces and bodies.

My current research topics include spatio-temporal modeling and editing, non-rigid structure from motion, and statistical learning for time-series data.
