 I'm Rushil Kekre and 
 I love all things computer graphics. 


I'm a Graphics Software Engineer currently working at HERE Technologies. I graduated with a Master's in Visualization from Texas A&M University in December 2017. In the past, I have interned at SideFX Software and Framestore on their FX simulation teams.

I have been interested in computer graphics since I was 13 years old. My main areas of interest are rendering and simulation, and I'm keen to see how Machine Learning and AI play a role in taking computer graphics further.

I love soccer and support Liverpool FC - The 2019 European Champions, 2019 World Champions, and the 2020 English Champions!
