I joined Adobe Research in August of 2014. My research interests include non-photorealistic rendering, data-driven digital visual content creation, sketch-based design, texture synthesis, etc.


I received my Ph.D. in computer science from Princeton University in June 2014. My PhD work focused on designing algorithms and interfaces for data-driven digital painting applications. My research outcomes were published at SIGGRAPH and NPAR conferences and featured on the Princeton webpage and various scientific newsletters[1], [2], [3]. During my PhD, I was awarded Google Research Fellowship and Siebel Scholarship. Before attending Princeton, I received my B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).


I am a devoted Argentine Tango dancer. I also enjoy Salsa and Swing. Besides dancing, I like various sports including scuba diving, figure skating, and hiking.
