Intro

I am currently a first-year PhD student of the Department of Computer Science, The University of Hong Kong. My research interests include computer graphics, computer animation and computer vision. I am currently working on projects related to character animation and motion synthesis, under the supervision of Dr. Jack M. WANG and Prof. Yizhou YU. Before arriving in HKU, I worked on image and mesh segmentation projects, focused on dealing with clinical medical images and meshes. I obtained my master's and bachelor's degree from Tsinghua University and Northeast Normal University respectively. I like programming, table-tennis, sci-fi movies, music, and interesting new stuff :)

Past Projects

Dental Mesh Segmentation (2012-9 ~ 2013-10)

Exploit morphologic skeleton on triangulated dental meshes to facilitate an effective segmentation of adjacent teeth in various scenarios. Work published on Computers & Graphics.

(C++, Qt, VTK, NAG)

       

 

Snake Models for CBCT Segmentation (2012.7 - 2013.12)

Exploit active contour models to facilitate an easy interactive object delineation and precise object segmentation. Work used in Simulation System for Orthodontics developed by medical group at CGCAD Lab, School of Software, Tsinghua University.

(C++, Qt, NAG, OpenGL)

   

 

Interactive Volume Data Fusion (2010.9 - 2012.7)

Use registration points separately marked on CT & MRI series to estimate translation matrix in helping acquire an integrated volume which contains both information from CT & MRI. Work used in Simulation System for Craniomaxillofacial Surgeries developed by medical group at CGCAD Lab, School of Software, Tsinghua University.

(C++, Qt, VTK, OpenGL)

   

 

Interactive CT Segmentation  (2006.9 - 2007.7)

Segment various tissus from CT images. Work used in Simulation System for Craniomaxillofacial Surgeries developed by medical group at CGCAD Lab, School of Software, Tsinghua University.

(C++, Qt, VTK, OpenGL)
