News: I will be joining UCLA's Math Department on July 1st, 2021.
I joined UPenn in 2017 as an Assistant Professor. Between 2015-2017 I was a postdoc at UCLA jointly appointed to the departments of Mathematics and Computer Science. I completed my PhD in CS at UCLA (2015), co-advised by Demetri Terzopoulos (CS) and Joseph Teran (Math). I completed a B.S. in Physics (2010) from the Special Class for the Gifted Young (SCGY) at the University of Science and Technology of China. I am a recipient of the UCLA Edward K. Rice Outstanding Doctoral Student Award (2015), NSF CRII award (2018) and NSF CAREER award (2020).
My current research interests include physics-based modeling/simulation and scientific computing. I work on numerical algorithms facilitating advancements in computer graphics, computational physics, and inverse problems (mainly vision and robotics).
