Hi! I'm Panda. I design.
I bring a broad skillset that allows me to work on varied interdisciplinary projects. My recent work falls under the umbrella of XR.

In my internships, I've worked on telerobotics, telepresence, and remote work. I've been fortunate to have worked with thought leaders and veterans in the XR industry like Jaron Lanier (Microsoft Research) and Johnny Lee (Google Brain Robotics).

For my PhD I'm exploring physical x virtual congruence in VR. I lead masters and PhD students at the MxR Lab and in advanced seminars I teach at the College of Design. I've also taught the broader community about VR, web development, creative coding, and data visualization.

Here's my up-to-date resume. Please get in touch for more details about specific projects and tenures.


Here are my three latest updates:

  • August 2020: I'm teaching an advanced graduate seminar on Virtual Reality and tech tinkering to masters and PhD students! Here's the syllabus.
  • May 2020: I'm interning with Mirosoft Research! I'll be working with Jaron Lanier at the Office of the CTO and exploring avatars to represent voice participants in video conferencing.
  • March 2020: Gave an invited lecture at Meredith College to introduce Interior Design students to Graphic Design. Here's the lecture.

And here's some selected older (pre-2017) work related to:

  • Human Computer Interaction x Learning Sciences
  • VR and AR
  • education
  • marriage of art, design, and culture with code, science, and technology
  • playing with code
  • visualizing stuff

I've been known to turn heads with my clean, organized desks and workspace.

Want to exchange ideas about education, learning, technology, the future, and life? Let's talk!
