I am a Ph.D. student at Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT, advised by Prof. Wojciech Matusik and is a member of Computational Design and Fabrication Group (CDFG). I received the M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2016, advised by Prof. Gordon Wetzstein and was a member of Stanford Computational Imaging Lab (SCI). Prior to that, I received my BEng in Optoelectronics Engineering from Beihang University.

My research interests include virtual/augmented reality, computational photography/display/fabrication, computer graphics, and machine learning.
