I am a research scientist at Adobe Research. Previously, I received my PhD at Stony Brook University, advised by Distinguished Professor Arie E. Kaufman. Before that, I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from Shandong University, China.

My research interests lie in computer graphics, human-computer interaction and virtual/augmented reality, particularly bridging fundamental algorithms and human perception factors. You can find my CV here.

Internship opportunities for PhD students: shoot me an email if you are interested in conducting and publishing top research for future VR/AR and (real-time) perceptual computer graphics at Adobe Research. I am fortunate to work with these talented interns: Yuanming Hu, Sandra Malpica, Yichao Zhou.
