I've spent the past two years at Shinoda Design Center.  Among other tasks, I created a custom Point of Sale system that was launched in September 2012.   As of December 2012 the system had run approximately 30,000 in 2 stores across 40 machines and manages 75,000+ skus and 75,000 customers.

Previously, I was a Ph.D. student in Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania. working at the SIG Center for Computer Graphics with  Dr. Norman I. Badler.  My focus was on human modeling and simulation.

From May 2009-February 2010, I was a visiting researcher at RWTH Aachen University in the Computer Graphics and Multimedia Lab.  There, I worked with Prof. Dr. Leif Kobbelt and was supported by the International Research Training Group (IRTG) 1382  in my goal to make more realistic virtual humans for use in psychological studies.
