  I obtained Ph.D. and B.S in Department of Electronic Science and Technology in University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2008 and 2003. My Ph.D. supervisor is Prof. Heung-Yeung Shum. I had been taking internship in Visual Computing Group in Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA) since July 2004 to 2008. My mentors were Dr. Ying-Qing Xu and Sing Bing Kang. During 2008~2010, I worked with Prof. Julie Dorsey and Prof. Holly Rushmeier on sketching related projects at Computer Graphics Lab at Yale. I visited Stanford University and worked in Prof Leonidas Guibas's Lab as a visiting associate professor from Feb 2017 to Aug. 2017.
