Short Bio

I'm a second year Ph.D. student under the supervision of Prof. Qixing Huang in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin. I received my B.S. degree from the Department of Computer Science at Peking University in 2019 with First Class Honours. I also spent time at Stanford, CMU, and UCLA before.

My research interests are in 3D computer vision and Graphics. If you are interested, please don't hesitate contacting me!

National Athletes, Level five in Amateur of Go(Weiqi)

I received the certificate of National Athletes of Go in 2013 and the certificate of Level Five in Amateur in 2010. I enjoy the variable possibilities between the black and white chess. I can always dive into the game of Go for the whole day. This kind of pure competition really attracts me!

Good at all kinds of sports

I love a plenty of sports, such as ping-pong, basketball, swimming, badminton and so on. Also, I involved many different sports competitions during my school life.

  • Got Third level Athletes of Badminton at Peking University in 2015
  • Selected as the member of swimming team at my home city.
  • I won the third place of ping-pong competition in my high school.
  • Selected as the member of basketball class team in my high school.
  • Sports always bring me endless enery to do anything. It helps me to keep enthusiasm of doing research.
