Short Bio

I am the 5th year Ph.D. student working with Professor Jing Hua in Graphics and Imaging Lab, the Computer Science Department, Wayne State University. Before I came to Wayne State University, I got my M.S degree (2006) from the Institute of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence and B.S degree (2003) from the Department of computer Science of Huazhong University of Science & Technology in Wuhan, P.R.China.
Currently I am working in Gamma Technologies, IL. Here is my Resume.

Research Interests

Visual & Geometric Computing:

Computer Graphics, 3D Geometry Processing and Analysis, Geometric Modeling, Computer Vision, Visualization, Computer Gaming
