Bio: 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, 2013) in UCLA under Demetri Terzopoulos. Before that, I obtained my bachelor degree (Modern Physics, 2011) in University of Science and Technology of China (USTC).
