Hello there :)

I am Mia — a master's student in computer science at Stanford University, advised by Professor Maneesh Agrawala. Previously, I earned my BCSA (Bachelor of Computer Science and Arts) at Carnegie Mellon University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Professor Jun-Yan Zhu on generative visual systems and Professor Kyuha Shim on computational design.

My research interests are at the intersection of computer graphics, computational 2D and 3D design, and storytelling. I am interested in leveraging generative models to create visual content and tools.

I am passionate about teaching and express this through my work as a comic artist, developing accessible educational illustrations on technical topics. I have had the privilege of co-teaching courses on Generative AI at SIGGRAPH. In my free time, I volunteer as a math tutor for preschool children at local schools in Palo Alto.

🐰 I currently co-organize Stanford Graphics Cafe Seminar. Subscribe to our mailing list for updates on our weekly talks!
