Ph.D student at UC Berkeley.
Deep Learning methods for 3D Geometries and Physical Systems.


I’m a fifth-year Ph.D student at UC Berkeley advised by Prof. Philip Marcus, affiliated with the Data Analytics group at NERSC, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. My research interest is in Machine Learning and Deep Learning methodologies related to 3D geometry. In particular, I am interested in leveraging advances in 3D learning for applications in a variety of physical and engineering systems, examples include 3D scene reconstruction, omnidirectional image segmentation, climate pattern detection and aerodynamical shape optimization.

Prior to joining UC Berkeley, I got my Bachelor’s degree from Cornell University, as well as a joint degree from Zhejiang University.


  • New! Two papers accepted to CVPR 2020! Check out my papers on local implicit grid representations for 3D scenes, and adversarial texture optimization from RGB-D scans.
  • My recent paper on Deep Differentiable Simplex Layer has been accepted to ICCV 2019 conference!
  • I will be interning in Machine Perception @ Google Research in summer 2019 as a Ph.D research intern.
  • My work on Spherical CNNs on Unstructred Grids has been chosen for an oral presentation at the AGU (Americal Geophysics Union).
  • Two of my papers have been accepted to the ICLR 2019 conference!
  • I am interning this summer at the Data Analytics group in NERSC, Lawrence Berkeley National Labratory, working with Prabhat and Karthik Karshinath on new Deep Learning methodologies for Climate Science.
  • I am invited to visit Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Labratory, and to present my work on 3D deep learning.
  • I made an oral presentation of my work on Aerodynamics Optimization using Deep Learning at Physics Informed Machine Learning.
