Hi there! I’m a first-year MS Computing student specializing in Graphics & Visualization at the University of Utah. My research interest is on real-time rendering and animation of digital humans. Currently, I’m working as a Graduate Research Assistant under Prof P. (Saday) Sadayappan, and our work is focused on accelerating large tensor operations through distributed computing and parallel execution on the GPU.
Previously, I conducted research on storytelling, education, and novel interaction techniques in AR/VR at the IMXD Lab, IIT Bombay, under Prof Jayesh Pillai. I also worked as the Technical Director of Manhole Collective, the creators of the real-time animated short film Manhole, which won third place in Unreal’s Short film challenge in India and was screened at the prestigious Annecy film festival.
