Happy faces after a hibachi feast with my students (Salt Lake City, February 2017).

Students in My Research Group

These are students I advise and/or work with on various research projects, not including all students who are taking my classes or doing independent study with me.

Past Students

These are graduated students I advised and/or worked with, not including all students who took my classes or did independent study with me.



Future Students

I'm always interested in working with technically strong students. If you are interested in working with me, please read the following.

If you are already a University of Utah student, please feel free to communicate your interest in working with me anytime (the earlier the better). The best way to start would be taking one of my courses. I typically don't accept students who haven't performed exceptionally well in one of my classes. Doing an independent study with me is another good option.

If you are considering applying to the University of Utah, I would highly encourage that you do so. If you include my name in your application, I will get to see your file, though I am not always involved in the admission decisions. I would recommend including images and/or links to youtube videos about your prior graphics-related work. If you have published papers, you can include (some of) them as well. Note that the application interface does not include options for adding images or additional documents, but you can always attach such documents to other files you are uploading and/or put links in your CV. In the past years there was no application fee for domestic students and a very small fee for international students. Please check with the School of Computing to see if this is still the case.
