I received my B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Tsinghua University (Beijing, China) in 2010 and 2015 respectively. I am currently an associate professor at College of Computer Science, Nankai University (Tianjin, China).


My research interests lies in computer graphics, computer vision and artificial intelligence. Current researches involve physically-based/learning-based simulation, 3D neural rendering and reconstruction. I am looking for students who want to impress others and are motivated to do frontier researches.


For 2025 graduate/PhD applications, feel free to contact me via e-mail.
