About Me

I am a second-year PhD student at CSE, Washington University in St. Louis. I conduct research on computer graphics and geometric computing under the supervision of Prof. Tao Ju. I am interested in applying mathematics and computation to tackle challenging problems with a geometric flavor, with applications ranging from computer animation, geometric modeling to medical imaging.

I earned my master’s degree from Tsinghua University in 2018. There, I worked on remeshing with Prof. Hui Zhang and Prof. Dong-Ming Yan. I finished my undergraduate study in 2015 from Tsinghua University with a major in Material Science and a minor degree in Computer Science.

Recently, I have been collaborating with Adobe Research on a project about injective mapping and we have a paper accepted by Siggraph 2020.
