Jie Xu

I am a Ph.D. student at MIT CSAIL, advised by Professor Wojciech Matusik in the Computational Design and Fabrication Group (CDFG). I obtained my B.Eng. from Department of Computer Science and Technology at Tsinghua University with honor in 2016. During my undergraduate period, I worked with Professor Shi-Min Hu in the Tsinghua Graphics & Geometric Computing Group and with Professor Stelian Coros as an exchange student at CMU. My research interests include Computer Graphics, Computational Fabrication, Robotics Control and Reinforcement Learning.
