About Me

I am now a principal researcher in Internet Graphics Group of Microsoft Research Asia . I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Graphics from Tsinghua University in 1999. My Ph.D. thesis is about hardware assisted volume rendering. I got my B.S. Degree and Master Degree in Computer Science from Zhejiang University in 1993 and 1996 respectively.

 

Research Interests

My research interests include appearance modeling and rendering, texture synthesis, and image based modeling and rendering. Specifically, my research concentrates on studying the underline principles of material light interaction and light transport, and developing efficient methods for appearance modeling and rendering. I am also interested in performance capturing and facial animation.
