  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 was Dr. Harry Shum. I worked in Visual Computing Group in Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA) as a research intern under supervision of Dr. Ying-Qing Xu and Dr. Sing Bing Kang since July 2004 to Aug. 2008. During 2008~2010, I worked with Prof. Julie Dorsey and Prof. Holly Rushmeier on sketching related projects at Computer Graphics Lab at Yale. I joined School of Information Science in USTC since 2010. I visited Stanford University and worked in Prof Leonidas Guibas's Lab as a visiting associate professor from Feb 2017 to Aug. 2017. My research interests include image-based 3D modeling, sketch-based content creation, and medical image analysis.
