Bio: I'm now a postdoc in Chenfanfu Jiang's group in University of Pennsylvania after spending five years working with Eftychios Sifakis. 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).
