About Me

I am a PhD student in Computer Science Department of UMass Amherst. My advisor is Professor Evangelos Kalogerakis.

Research Interest

My research interests are mainly about visual computing, which is the intersection of machine learning, computer graphics and computer vision. Currently, I am exploring how to apply data-driven approach to character animation workflow.
