About Me

I earned my Ph.D in Computer Science from the Ohio State University in August 2007. After that, I did three-year PostDoc (2007-2009 at Stanford University and 2009-2010 at Princeton University). In September 2010, I joined Mathematical Sciences Center in Tsinghua University. I also received both my Masters degree and Bachelor degree from Tsinghua University.


Research Interests

My research interests are in discrete and computational geometry and topology.
Currently, the research projects I am working on include:
1) discrete conformal geometry and discrete geometric flow;
2) discrete optimal transport, discrete Monge-Ampere equations, or in general Minkowski-type of Problems;
3) Laplace Operator, or in general solving PDE, on point cloud;
4) metric space approximation using graphs.


Teaching



Students

Zhen Li (2012 PhD, coadvised with Zuoqiang Shi): He works on Laplace Operator, or in general PDE, on Point Cloud.
Tianqi Wu (2012 Masters): He works on discrete conformal geometry and discrete geometric flow.
Xiang Zhu (2013 PhD)


For Interested Students

I am looking for motivated students (both undergraduate and graduate) with interests in discrete and computational geometry and topology. Interested students are encouraged to stop by my office or send me emails.
