letters in llamafont that spell out 'welcome

I am a third-year PhD student in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, where I work in computer graphics and geometry processing. I am a member of the Geometry Collective and advised by Keenan Crane. Some topics I've been thinking lately are implicit representations and geodesic distance.

Some resources:

For fun, I like to run and write crossword puzzles. I used to be rather serious about distance running, but had 8+ injuries between 2015 - 2020. I started training again in late 2021 and have been really enjoying the running community in Pittsburgh. On Tuesdays, you can usually find me running with the Pittsburgh Pharaoh Hounds. I have fun organizing the Random Distance Run at CMU.

Previously, I graduated from Caltech in 2020 with a B.S. in Applied & Computational Mathematics. The background to my website is taken from a photograph I took from the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains in Pasadena, California. :)
