Bio

I am an assistant professor at Division of Electrical & Computer Engineering, School of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS), LSU. I finished my undergraduate study in 2003 at University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) with a major in Computer Science, and obtained my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 2005 and 2008. I joined the faculty of LSU in 2008. I hold a joint position in the Center for Computation & Technology (CCT), LSU. I am an adjunct assistant professor at Division of Computer Science, EECS, LSU since 2009. I am also an adjunct assistant professor at Pennington Biomedical Research Center.
I am currently leading the Geometric and Visual Computing (GVC) Group at LSU.
