I am a fifth year PhD student working with Prof. Adam Finkelstein in Princeton Graphics group. I am expected to graduate in June 2014. My research interests include non-photorealistic rendering, digital art creation techniques, data-driven interactive applications, texture synthesis, etc. I have been working closely with collaborators including Stephen DiVerdi, Connelly Barnes, Radomir Mech and Paul Asente about data-driven painting applications. I have served as a research intern for the past few years at Adobe Advanced Technology Lab (2011 spring and summer, 2012 summer, 2013 summer). My research about digital painting was featured on Princeton webpage and is being commercialized into Adobe Photoshop. I have been awarded Google Research Fellowship in Artistic Graphics from 2012 till now. I recently received Siebel Scholarship for class 2014.
I come from Beijing, China. I received my B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in June 2009. I spent my junior year studying in University of Pennsylvania, where I picked up my research interests in Computer Graphics. Before coming to Princeton, I undertook a summer internship as a software engineer at Electronic Arts in California in summer 2008 and served as a research assistant at HKUST in summer 2009.
I am a devoted Argentine Tango dancer. I have served as an officer at Princeton Tango club. I also enjoy Salsa and Swing. I co-founded a Salsa club at HKUST. Besides dancing, I also like various sports including scuba diving, figure skating, hiking and horseback riding. I am an adventurous nature-lover and passionate explorer.
