3D Graphics, Illustration, Software Engineering, Game Development

Hi I'm Aimei (pronounced I-may). Currently a Technical Director in simulation and cloth tailoring at Pixar Animation Studios for Inside Out, Finding Dory, The Good Dinosaur, Cocoand Incredibles 2. Right now I'm taking on a greater leadership role on Incredibles 2 as well.

I like to make art in my free time and experiment with new techniques and media. My goal is to transport the viewer to alternate universes and realities. I focus primarily on female characters and themes of isolation, inner turmoil, self discovery, and transformation. (The usual...)

I graduated from Brown University in 2013 with a double major in Computer Science and Physics.  In the past I've interned at the Space Telescope Science InstitutePixar Undergraduate Program, and the Johns Hopkins Materials Research Science and Engineering Center.  I was also a two-year teaching assistant for the computer animation classes CS125 and CS128 at Brown University.
