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 optimization and simulation for computer graphics, especially physics-based animation and geometry processing.
My goal is to devise intelligent, reliable, accurate, efficient, and controllable methods that can benefit visual effects & animation, VR/AR & games, geometric design, and fabrication industry.
Recently I have been looking into domain decomposing optimization for deformation problems (DOT, ...), algebraic multigrid preconditioning, topology optimization, operator splitting for visco-elasto-plasticity (Silly Rubber), subspace MPM, dynamic fracture simulation (CD-MPM), etc. I have been interning at Adobe Research to work with Dr. Danny Kaufman, Dr. Timothy Langlois, and Dr. Vladimir (Vova) Kim on DOT and surface parameterization (OptCuts).
During my M.Sc., I worked with Prof. Alla Sheffer on garment modeling (FoldSketch), OptCuts, mesh simplification, and shape deformation. I was also very lucky to work with Dr. Xinxin Zhang and Prof. Robert Bridson on fluids simulation.
