My research interests lie in domain generalization, dataset bias, computer vision, computer graphics, robotics, physics simulations, animation, reinforcement learning, and deep learning.

Currently, I'm conducting research at Intel. I've held research roles at Carnegie Mellon UniversityGeorgia Tech, Clemson University, and American University. I've also held research roles at Roblox, National Science Foundation, Electronic Arts, Pixar Animation Studios, and LAIKA Animation Studios.
