I have joined Adobe Research as a Research Engineer in the Creative Intelligence Lab. My research interests include robust geometry processing, computational fabrication, physics simulation and cloud computing.

I have completed my PhD study in the department of Computer Science at New York University under the supervision of Dr. Denis Zorin.

I have my Master's study done at the department of Computer Science of the University of British Columbia with my supervisor Dr. Alla Sheffer.

I received the Bachelor of Computer Science (BCS) degree from the University of Waterloo in 2007.

I am very interested in martial arts. I received my brown belt in Tae Kwon Do during high school. In summer 2008, I attended the summer program of Shaolin e po school of martial arts.

Besides martial arts, I also enjoy playing tennis though I am not very good at it.
