I am currently a 2nd-Year Ph.D. student in Computer Science, working in Perceiving Systems, Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, with Michael J. Black.

I was briefly enrolled (2019-2020) as a Ph.D. student in Vision and Graphics Lab at University of Southern California before I decided to relocate at Tuebingen, advised by Hao Li (Now the CEO and Co-founder of Pinscreen). I got M.Sc. degree at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2019, working in Machine Vision and Intelligence Group, advised by Cewu Lu, and got B.Eng. degree in Digital Media Technology at Shandong University in 2016, worked closely with Lu Wang.

I also spent wonderful time at USC Institute for Creative Technology with Jun Xing (Now the lead researcher of miHoYo), Kwai Y-tech Graphics AI Teamwith Chongyang Ma, LightChaser Animation Studio with Xinxin Zhang (Now the co-founder and CTO of Zenus), and is working as R&D intern at Ubisoft La Forge.

I am a Virtual Avatar Researcher, playing with pixels and voxels. My research interest mainly lies in the intersection of computer vision and computer graphics, especially in 3D Human Digitalization (i.e., Reconstruction, Modeling, Animation) and 2D Human Pose Estimation and Tracking.
