PERSONAL INFORMATION

I am a first-year Ph.D. student majoring in Computer and Information Science at University of Pennsylvania. I am advised by Prof. Chenfanfu Jiang. I graduated from Tsinghua University in July 2018.
My primary research interest is physically based simulation.
Currently, I have been working on utilizing material point method to simulate different phenomena and developing novel technology to accelerate existing simulation framework.

PROJECTS

Taichi
An Open source computer graphics library in C++ and python.
I participated in the development of Taichi with MPM, time-variant level sets, and a WebGL-based visualization system (which allows checking results remotely).
I'm collaborating with the project creator (Yuanming Hu).


NaivePT
Individual project, based on C++
Final project for the course, Fundamentals of Computer Graphics, which get the only full marks
Offline renderer based on path tracing and probabilistic progressive photon mapping, which implements caustics, volumetric scattering, etc.


Phantouch VR
Team project, based on OpenGL
Built for A round financing for a start-up company (Phantouch)
A graphics system for real-time virtual reality applications, built from scratch
I am responsible for shadow maps and the whole real-time post-processing pipeline, including lens distortion, bloom FX, light-shafts, etc.

HOBBIES

I have a great capability of roller skating ( Combo1, Combo2 Videos on YouTube) and was the leader of the roller skating team at Tsinghua University (2016-2017).

Many computer graphics enthusiasts have interest in photography. It is good for improving the aesthetic ability and getting beautiful research results. For me, another cheaper way is more attractive. I have been practising sketching and try to record everything. (I am a complete beginner and sending emails to teach me to paint is welcome!)
