Prior to joining Adobe, I was a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University working in Leonidas Guibas' group. I obtained my Ph.D. from Princeton University, where I was advised by Thomas Funkhouser. I did my undergraduate at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Originally, I am from Kara-Balta, a small town in Kyrgyzstan.
