I'm an nth year Ph.D. student advised by Kavita Bala and Steve Marschner. I do research on rendering algorithms and appearance acquisition/modeling, specializing in problems related to fibrous materials such as human hair and cloth.

Before coming to Cornell, I lectured at Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science, Kasetsart University. I finished my undergrad at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and also got a master's degree there.

My goal is to graduate in June 2017. I have finished job hunting and will join Google Japan as a software engineer in July 2017 (if I can safely graduate, that is).

In any case, My CV is available here: [PDF]

My Erdős number is at most 4. (Khungurn - Saranurak - Nanongkai - Tetali - Erdős)

I have studied Japanese for 6 years: 3 years in college and 3 more years here at Cornell. I can hold conversations, explain rather complicated concepts, and write essays. Here are examples of writings I submitted to my Japeanese classes:

As for formal qualifications, I took the JLPT N2 in December 2015 and passed.
