ABOUT


I'm a mechanical engineer turned software engineer currently living in Silicon Valley. I spend most of my days working on computational geometry, generative design and physics-based optimization. In my free time, I dabble in poker, brazilian jiu-jitsu, machine learning, computer vision and medical imaging.

My current interests are summarized below, click to expand.


Computational Engineering

COMPUTATIONAL GEOMETRY  /  NUMERICAL ANALYSIS  /  OPTIMIZATION


Development and application of computational models and simulations to solve complex physical problems arising in engineering analysis and design. Heavy focus on geometric modeling and design optimization. Stack revolves around C++ and Python.


Computer Vision & AI

COMPUTER VISION  /  DEEP LEARNING  /  MEDICAL IMAGING


Particularly interested in machine learning for vision and imaging technology. Worked on various computer vision and deep learning projects, from self-driving cars to medical imaging (CT/MRI). Stack generally involves OpenCV, TensorFlow and CUDA.


Web Development

UI DESIGN / DJANGO / BOOTSTRAP


Full stack development of robust, database-driven web applications. Stack generally includes Django, Bootstrap, Apache and MySQL. Interested in learning embedded graphics like WebGL.


Additive Manufacturing

FDM / CFF / SLA / CLIP


Specific interest in the functional applications of 3D printing technologies, rather than prototyping and gimmick-making. Prior experience with FDM, CFF, SLA and CLIP technologies.
