Internship and collaboration at Adobe Research (summer 2019): if you are a PhD student interested in a research internship or collaboration, please send me an email with your CV and a summary of your research interests.


In fall 2018, I am joining Adobe Research as a Research Scientist. I got my PhD from Columbia University and BEng from HKUST.

In my research, I am interested in immersive audiovisual media, augmented reality, and computational design for fabrication. My past research has been recognized by an ACM UIST Best Paper Award, an Adobe Research Fellowship, a Shapeways Educational Grant, a NVIDIA PhD Fellowship Finalist, and an HKUST academic achievement medal.
