I am a principal researcher at Tencent ARC Lab and Tencent AI Lab, where I lead an effort on 3D digitization/generation and immersive content creation. We are actively looking for research interns and full-time researchers to work on related research topics, including but not limited to 3D reconstruction, novel view synthesis, 3D generation, and shape analysis; please feel free to reach out if you are interested.

Previously, I worked as a senior research engineer at Y-tech, Kuaishou Technology. Before that, I was the CTO of Owlii (acquired by Kuaishou).

I did my PhD at Graphics and Geometric Computing Group, Tsinghua University, where I was advised by Prof. Shi-Min Hu. During my PhD, I spent a semester as a visiting PhD student at Computer Graphics Group, RWTH Aachen University, advised by Prof. Leif Kobbelt. Earlier, I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Tsinghua University.
