Welcome to my personal homepage and server. I am a graduate student in Aerospace
Engineering at the University of Michigan, and my
large-scale flows using vortex sheets and vortex methods. I have been known to
create computer graphic artwork, program graphics and dynamics routines, shoot
medium and large-format photos,
play swing guitar, drive a
and hack Linux. I'm currently learning parallel programming, gardening, and cooking.
Here is some software that I have had a hand in creating:
- dla3d - a program that
simulates off-lattice three-dimensional diffusion-limited aggregation; in short,
those branchy, dendritic structures that seem so common in nature.
- part3d - an experimental particle system
for making galaxies collide, planets explode, million-ball pool tables,
and other relatively uncommon pheonmena
- Rocktools - a small toolkit for manipulating
triangulated meshes, specifically those in OBJ, TIN, or RAW formats
- HFTools - my first crack at a big
program, I wrote these tools to create and manipulate heightfields
- Dynamic Tree
Project - a semi-successful attempt at simulating a tree blowing in the wind
- A World Builder Page - a list of
programs and utilities to assist in the design and creation of realistic
landscapes; includes simulation software for erosion, plate tectonics, 2d flow,
digital elevation model conversion, etc.
My work as a visual artist can be seen at:
- Another of my recent works will appear in the Art Gallery at SIGGRAPH 2004 in Los Angeles.
I consider myself lucky to be counted in the group of multiple consecutive presenters among
all of the artists whom I have followed and respect.
- Two of my recent pieces were shown at sync04, sponsored by entity
- The SIGGRAPH 2003 Art Gallery decided to hang another one of my pieces. Here's the image page. In addition, my piece has been chosen to join the Travelling Art Show (I'll link when there's one available).
- I had two works hanging in the SIGGRAPH 2002 Art Gallery.
- Also, three pieces of mine were send to COSIGN 2002. See my submission page.
