About Me

I am a research scientist at Facebook Reality Labs (Oculus). My research interests span the fields of computer vision, computer graphics and robotics. Before joining Facebook, I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Princeton University, where I worked with Prof. Szymon Rusinkiewicz. I was also a member of the Princeton ImageX Labs. I obtained my B.Eng in Computer Engineering from HKUST, where I was advised by Prof. Chi-Keung Tang.
