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 painting applications, which was published in SIGGRAPH and NPAR conferences. My research about digital painting was featured on Princeton webpage and scientific newsletters[1], [2], [3]. During my PhD, I have been awarded Google Research Fellowship from 2012 to 2014 and Siebel Scholarship from 2013 to 2014. Before attending Princeton, 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 computer graphics in University of Pennsylvania.


I am a devoted Argentine Tango dancer. I served as an officer at Princeton Tango club. I also enjoy Salsa and Swing. I co-founded a Salsa club in my college, HKUST. Besides dancing, I also like various sports including scuba diving, figure skating, and hiking.
