I'm a PhD candidate in Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. I'm advised by two amazing researchers, Craig S. Kaplan and Paul Asente. I'm interested in computer graphics, game development, real-time rendering, non-photorealistic rendering, and graphic design. My research is about developing algorithms to tightly pack deformable/bendable/flexible objects inside a container shape. We published award-winning papers and I was fortunate to receive Cheriton Scholarship at UW. When I'm not in front of a computer, I'm an amateur ultra-endurance runner who always seek type-2 fun adventures. I finished my first 160-km trail ultramarathon in just over 22 hours. I also have a win and several podium finishes at local ultra races.
