I obtained my Applied Math Ph.D. degree under the supervision of Prof. Uri Ascher in December 2008 from the Mathematics Department of the University of British Columbia. Before it I have been working with Prof. Pusheng Fei at Wuhan Universityand from there obtained my Computational Math Ph.D. degree in June 2006. Since January 2009, I worked with Prof. Eldad Haber on inverse problems as a postdoctoral research fellow at UBC until joined SIAT at Shenzhen in November 2010. From 2016, I start to found a new VCC at Shenzhen University. 

My research interests are in Computer Graphics and Scientific Computing, focusing on Point-based Modeling, Geometric Analysis, 3D Acquisition and Creation. I have published more than 50 journal/conference papers at the top-tier venues including 25 publications at Sigrraph/Siggraph Asia/ACM TOG/IEEE TPAMI. I am currently an Associate Editor-in-Chief of The Visual Computer (TVCJ) and is on the editorial board of Computer Graphics Forum (CGF), Computers & Graphics (C&G) and Frontiers of Computer Science (FCS). I have also served on the program committees of major computer graphics conferences including SIGGRAPH ASIA, EG, EG-STAR, SGP, PG, GMP, SMI, GI, CGI, 3DV and CAD/Graphics. I was invited to be SIGGRAPH ASIA 2017 Technical Briefs and Posters Co-Chair, besides SIGGRAPH ASIA 2016 Workshops Chair and SIGGRAPH ASIA 2014 Community Liaison Chair.

I have been selected as a Distinguished Member of CCF and a Senior Member of ACM in 2016. I received NSFC Excellent Young Scientist grant and Guangdong Technological Innovation Leading Talent award in 2015, and also the recipient of 2014 Guangdong Outstanding Graduate Advisor Award, 2013 CAS International Cooperation Award for Young Scientists, 2012 CAS Lujiaxi Young Talent Award and 2011 Shenzhen Peacock Talent Award.
