Epistemics & Aesthetics
The parallel pursuits of knowledge and beauty drive my academic and artistic endeavors.
In particular, I have had a lifelong interest in artificial intelligence since it not only raises intriguing philosophical and mathematical questions, but poses daunting technical challenges.
Similarly, glass as a creative medium possesses a unique transcendent beauty while demanding a high degree of technical skill from the craftsperson or engineer.
Aside from pursuing these interests independently, I'm currently working on combining them by developing new technology for the automated shaping of glass, and complementary algorithmic design techniques. The glass object pictured in the header of this website was shaped using this technology.
