I’m a Phd Student in the Image Processing Lab(IPL). I’m the original developer of IBIS, IPL’s Image-Guided Surgery(IGSN) program.

I’m interested in creating informative and esthetically pleasing images from any kind of data and for any kind of application.

I also work on animation film making projects. See my external home page for more details on that.
