ABOUT ME

I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof. Emily Whiting in the Visual Computing Lab at Dartmouth College. I received my Ph.D. at the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, under the supervision of Prof. Charlie C.L. Wang. I obtained my M.S. in Mechatronics Engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology, and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Southwest Jiaotong University. Before I came to Hong Kong, I also worked as an assitant research in Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

My research is concerned with 3D fabrication, computer-aided design and computational geometry. My recent interests revolves around shape modeling and optimization for additive manufacturing.
