I am a PhD student in the Princeton Graphics Group. My advisor is Prof. Szymon Rusinkiewicz . Prior to coming to Princeton, I did my undergraduate study at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. My general research interests lie in the field of computer graphics, vision, and robotics. I am excited about creating tools for acquiring, reconstructing, representing, and analyzing both 3D and 2D shapes from the visual world.
