I am a PhD student at UCLA, advised by Prof. Chenfanfu Jiang and Prof. Demetri Terzopoulos. I obtained my B.Eng. degree in Software Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Prior to UCLA, I spent a gap year working as a research intern in Bytedance AI Lab. I also did a research internship at the Pennsylvania State University in 2019, advised by Prof. Dongwon Lee. My current research interests focus on physics-based simulation and machine learning.

Here is my CV.
