About Me

I'm a postdoctoral researcher in the computing school at The University of Utah. I previously worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Clemson University. I received my Ph.D. in 2020, and M.S. degree in 2014 from Xiamen University. I was a visiting student at the University of New Mexico from 2017 to 2019. My research interests include 3D modeling, physics-based simulation, deep learning, and AR/VR.
