About

I am a second year PhD student of applied mathematics at UCLA working under the supervision of Prof. Joseph Teran. My research interests are physics/PDE based simulation for computer graphics and computational linear algebra. I graduated with BS in Mathematics of Computation and MA in Mathematics from UCLA in 2019 under Departmental Scholars Program. I was Math Undergraduate Merit Scholarship recipient between 2015-2019 and gold medalist in 55th International Mathematical Olympiad in 2014.

Here is my CV.
