About Me

    I have finished my PhD research and study at the SIG Graphics Lab, and I have successfully defended my dissertation in February 2015.

    My main research interests include Modeling of Sound Propagation, Localization and Perception, as well as Intelligent Virtual Agent and Crowd Simulation. I am also interested in other Graphics and Animation topics including: Motion Graph, Steering, Navigation, Path Planning, Motion Synthesis, and Virtual Reality, etc. I used to work on Real-time Deformable Models and Virtual Surgical Systems, and published several related papers.

    Before studying at Penn, I received my Master's degree at SJTU, and Bachelor's at Tongji.
