About me

I’m currently pursuing a Computer Science Ph.D. degree at the University of Southern California, advised by Prof. Jernej Barbič. Before joining USC, I obtained my B.E. degree in Computer Science and Technology from the mixed class in Chu Kochen Honors College, Zhejiang University. I was very fortunate to work with Prof. Jin Huang and Prof. Nobuyuki Umetani during my undergraduate studies.

My research interests include physics-based simulation and geometry processing. I am fascinated by simulation algorithms that can capture the physics beauty, generate impressive animations, or assist fabrication design in a totally virtual world.
