About Me

I enjoyed a one-year visiting at the CG@Penn of University of Pennsylvania, working with Prof. Ladislav Kavan (started from Dec 2013, ended in Jan 2015)

I am currently an associate professor (from July. 2013) in the College of Information Science & Technology at Beijing Normal University. I was an assistant professor (July. 2006 to June 2013) in the College of Information Science & Technology at Beijing Normal University.

I received my Ph.D in 2006 from the State key laboratory of Virtual Reality Technology and Systems at Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (Beihang University).where I am advised by Prof Qinping Zhao.

I received my BA. in 1999 from the department of mathematics at Beijing Normal University.

Research Interest

I am interested in Copmuter Graphics, Computer Animation, Virtual Reality, Especially in Character Animation, Fluid Simulation and Rendering


ASF/AMC file loader and motion viewer
This is a microsoft vc8.0 project that read asm and asf mocap files and render it with opengl. "data" includes mocap data from cmu mocap database. "src" includes math(matrix and vector) mocapfile(asf file and asm file reader class) and character(a skeleton class). "vsprojects" includes two projects 1.mocap reader test(console program). 2.mocap render test glut(opengl program depends on glut and devil) pre-compiled binaries for these two project are include as mocapReaderTest.exe and mocapRenderTestGlut.exe(depends on dlls of opengl glut and devil) these two program are both expect an director named "data" in the same dir
