I am currently an Applied Scientist @ Amazon. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I defended my Ph.D thesis in 2019 summer and obtained my Second PhD degree in the Computer Science Department at The University of California, Los Angeles, under the supervision of Distinguished Prof. Demetri Terzopoulos. My research interests are focused on Computer Graphics and Computer Vision.
Prior to joining UCLA, I obtained my First PhD at The Pennsylvania State University under the supervision of Distinguished Prof. Mark Latash. During my time at Penn State, I studied behavioral neuroscience in the Kinesiology Department with a research focus on human motor control and biomechanics. I obtained my Master degree in Robotics and Bachelor degree in Automation from Tongji University in China.
My research goal is to close the gap between artificial and real human. My results lie in the sensorimotor control of a biomechanical human musculoskeletal model and its application on medicine using deep learning among other techniques. To that end, I am broadly interested in virtual human control, neuroscience, robotics, VR/AR, human-robot interaction and robot-aided rehabilitation.
I have taught 2 different classes at UCLA, "Introduction to Computer Science" and "Data Structure", and 2 different classes at Penn State, "Biomechanics" and "The Neurobiology of Motor Control and Development".
