Short Bio

I am an associate professor with the State Key Laboratory of Virtual Reality Technology and Systems, School of Computer Science and Engineering, Beihang University. In 2016-2018, I did postdoc research in Visual Media Computing at Tsinghua University. I received a PhD degree from Tsinghua University in 2016, supervised by Prof. Shi-Min Hu. During 2013-2014, I visited the Visual Computing Group at Cardiff University as a CSC joint PhD student, supervised by Prof. Ralph Martin and Prof. Yu-Kun Lai. I got a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Technology from Xidian University in 2011.

Recent research interests:

  • Virtual Reality: Content Creation and Exploration
  • Immersive Experience in Virtual Environments
  • Redirected Locomotion (check out Awesome RDW papers from the community!)
  • Computer Graphics with Deep Learning

研究生招生: 团队每年招收研究生数名(硕士、直博或普博),研究方向为虚拟/增强现实、计算机图形学和计算机视觉。团队注重国际合作,与领域内顶尖学者保持密切学术合作关系;关注特色发展,根据学生的特点进行个性化培养。欢迎热爱科研、踏实做事、具有创造力的同学加入团队。有兴趣的同学请邮件联系。

Currently I am not able to supervise international Ph.D/master applicants.

本科实习生招生: 团队长期接收北航本科生进课题组进行科研训练,有兴趣的同学请邮件联系。
