Central South University (Changsha, China) B.A → University of Chinese Academy of Science (Beijing, China) M.A → Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (Shenzhen, China) M.Phil → Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) R.A → University of California, Irvine (CA, US) Ph.D ( Autodesk (CA, US) Intern → Megvii (CA, US) Intern → Adobe (CA, US) Intern → Facebook (CA, US) Intern) → Tencent (CA, US) Researcher

I am a senior researcher at Tencent Pixel Lab based in New York, US. I received my Ph.D in Computer Science from University of California, Irvine in 2021, supervised by ZHAO Shuang. My interests include Computer Graphics and Vision, especially in material appearance modeling and physically based rendering. (My projects)

Before starting Ph.D, I was a member of BeingThere Centre and worked on several research projects at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) as a Research Associate.

I obtained my M.S in CS from Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy Sciences (Shenzhen, China), advised by HENG Pheng-Ann. And B.S in Mathematics from Central South University (Changsha, China).
