I'm a research scientist at Oculus Research, where I specialize in human-computer interaction for VR/AR. Previously, I was the founding engineer at 3Gear Systems, a startup developing hand-tracking technology. I received my Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in December 2012, where I worked on multitouch interaction with my advisor Maneesh Agrawala. Concurrently, I worked part time in the research group at Pixar Animation Studios with Tony DeRose. I completed my Bachelor's of Science and Engineering degree at Princeton University in 2006.
