Research areas: 
Intelligent Systems
Selected publications: 
Areas of interest: 

Monte Carlo, Density Estimation, & MCMC
How do we numerically solve multi-dimensional path-space integrals for realistic image synthesis?

Editing Physically-based Light Transport
Can we devise intuitive controls to edit physically-based lighting in synthetic images?

Basis-space Methods of Dynamics & Lighting
Can we use analytic bases to simulate physical dynamics in reduced-dimensional spaces?

Editing Complex Fluid Simulations
How do digital artists author turbulent fluid simulations? Can we design tools to help them?

Manufacturing Passive Optics & Probes
Can combining computation with 3D fabrication allow us to warp & capture light in the real world?
