About me

I finished my Ph.D. on March 2012 under the supervision of Prof. Takeo Igarashi. From April 2012, I am a postdoctoral researcher at Interactive Geometry Lab in ETH Zurich headed by Prof. Olga Sorkine-Hornung. I am interested in computer graphics and user interfaces in general including (but not limited to) :
