I am a researcher at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, University of Illinois. My research is focused on the analysis of the spatial patterns of natural and urban landscapes using satellite images and geospatial big data. My primary art medium is digital vector graphics, I use it to develop tessellations, fractal art, and geometric designs. Beside vector graphics, I use traditional pen and pencil, and watercolors.

Two creatures are locked together in a snub square rhombic tiling, a winged creature (square) and a horned one (rhombic). They manage to escape the confinement of the semi-regular tiling by climbing the cliffs offered by their three-dimensional interpretation of the planar tile. At the top of the cliffs, the winged creature manages to fly and escape leaving behind the horned creature who is wondering what to do next.
