Bio: As a graduate student since 2013, I'm under the supervision of Eftychios Sifakis in the UW Graphics Group. My interests are focused on physics-based simulation and scientific computing. I got my master degree (Computer Science) in UCLA under Demetri Terzopoulos. Before that, I obtained my bachelor degree (Modern Physics) in University of Science and Technology of China (USTC).

Research projects:
1. Compressible flow.
2. Cracking.
