About Me

I'm currently a Senior Research Engineer at Snap Research developing new features for visual content creation and enhancement. Previously I was a Senior Research Engineer at Activision Central Tech working on facial performance capture for game production. Prior to that, I was as a postdoc researcher at UBC and USC with Prof. Alla Sheffer and Prof. Hao Li respectively. I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Institute for Advanced Study of Tsinghua University in 2012, and received my B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from Fundamental Science Class of Tsinghua University in 2007.

[News for PhD students] If you are interested in doing an internship at Snap Research with me, please feel free to drop me an email with a brief introduction of yourself and your research.
