Short Bio

In 2019, I joined the Computer Graphics Laboratory (CGL) as a Ph.D. student with Professor Markus Gross at ETH Zürich. In 2018, I received my M.Sc. degree in Computational Science and Engineering at at ETH Zürich. My B.Sc. degree in Physics was received in 2016 at Nanjing University.

My research interests lie in computer graphics and machine learning, especially using data-driven methods to solve physically-based fluid simulation problems.

Research Topics

Fluid Simulation and Machine Learning

Our research focues on combining data-driven methods from Machine Learning and physically-based simulation, especially fluid simulation.

Data-driven Image Matting

The goal of natural image matting is the estimation of accurate opacities of a user-defined foreground object. We tackle this problem with data-driven methods. In particular, we developed a CNN-based matting pipeline that consists of sampling network to predict foreground and background colors and a matting network to predict alpha mattes.
