My research focuses on developing algorithms and hardware for capturing, modeling and animating dynamic shapes such as people and clothes. During my graduate studies, I have contributed to the topics of face animation, motion capture, moving surface reconstruction, and shape representation. These methods benefit content creation in movies, computer games and virtualized reality. I want to continue developing similar methods and improve the capture of moving surfaces, identify their appropriate modes of manipulation, and determine the supporting representation for this new type of data. I anticipate collaborating with researchers in media technologies, vision, robotics and biomechanics in order to advance the application of captured surface motions in entertainment, human-computer interaction, tracking, and robot and human locomotion.
