Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a freshman at MIT studying computer science and planetary science. I have always been fascinated with computer graphics programming, particularly drawing and modeling things found in space, like planets or stars. I am currently part of the ProjX program, and I am in the process of developing a graphics engine capable of rendering planetary bodies. In all subjects, I am a fan of interdisciplinary work, and I currently plan to focus my academic career on something combining both computer science and EAPS at MIT.

C12844: Computer Graphics Programming in HSSP Spring 2019 (Feb. 23, 2019)
This course provides an introduction to computer graphics programming with modern, core-profile OpenGL. We will discuss how OpenGL works internally, and how we can use this knowledge to create interesting graphical effects. We will learn how to structure OpenGL applications and how to create more advanced, stylized computer graphics.
