Short Bio

I am currently an associate professor in School of Informatics, Xiamen University. I obtained my bachelor from Yuanpei College, Peking University (2010), China and Ph.D. from National Centre for Computer Animation, Bournemouth University, UK (2015). My Ph.D. supervisors are Prof. Jianjun Zhang and Prof. Jian Chang. During my Ph.D, I also visited Prof. Wencheng Wang from State Key Laboratory of Computer Science in Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Science. After that I joined Institute of Media Innovation in Nanyang Technological University, under the supervision of Prof. Nadia Thalmann, before moving back to China.
