About me

I am currently a Ph.D candidate in VCC, KAUST, supervised by Prof. Peter Wonka and Prof. Maks Ovsjanikov. Before that, I obtained the MSc. degree from Oxford University, UK, and the BSc. degree from Zhejiang University, China. My research is mainly related to shape analysis and geometry processing. I am also interested in computer graphics and computer vision in general. Currently I am working on shape matching with deep learning and shape reconstruction with optimization techniques.
