Ph.D., Computer and Information Science, University of Pennsylvania, 2018 - present

I am a Ph.D. student at University of Pennsylvania advised by Prof. Chenfanfu Jiang. My research interests include computational optimization and numerical simulation, especially their application in physics-based animation and geometry processing.
My goal is to devise intelligent, reliable, accurate, efficient, and controllable methods that can benefit visual effects, animation, geometric design, and fabrication industry.
Recently I have been looking into domain decomposition for (un)constrained non-convex optimization (DOT, ...), algebraic multigrid preconditioning, topology optimization, operator splitting for visco-elasto-plasticity (Silly Rubber), subspace MPM, dynamic fracture simulation (CD-MPM), etc.
During my M.Sc., I worked with Prof. Alla Sheffer on garment modeling (FoldSketch), surface parameterization (OptCuts), mesh simplification, and shape deformation. I was also very lucky to work with Dr. Xinxin Zhang and Prof. Robert Bridson on fluids simulation, and to work as an intern at Adobe Research with Dr. Danny Kaufman, Dr. Vladimir (Vova) Kim, and Dr. Timothy Langlois.
