A few projects


Want to show someone that you care? Make them a flower. [Paper.js]


When a snake has two heads, they've got to work together to survive . Play DISEF alone or with a friend and attempt to synchronize hands and minds. [Unity3D, C#]

Math 121A Notes

After taking "Mathematical Tools for Scientists & Engineers," I decided to compile a set of notes for the course. The project has expanded into a condensed guide to Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Complex Analysis, & Harmonic Analysis—complete with custom diagrams! [LaTeX, TikZ]

Previous experience

Freelance Designer & Illustrator

I've been designing logos, T-shirts, posters, and websites for as long as I can remember. Check out my complete portfolio.

Los Alamos National Lab

I spent a summer simulating and analyzing exploding stars, also known as supernovae, exploring the impact of initial angular variation. Simulations were done with smoothed particle hydrodynamics codes. [C, Python, LaTeX]

CFD Lab @ UC Berkeley

Using the spectral method, I wrote a Navier-Stokes solver to simulate fluid flow in 3D periodic systems. [Python, LaTeX]
