I am a lecturer in the School of Computer Science and Informatics at Cardiff University. My primary research interest is in digital design tools and shape optimization techniques that facilitate manufacturing. One example is computational design tools for freeform architecture, which search for shapes that conform to the design intent while reducing the fabrication cost.
Previously, I worked as a lecturer in computer science at University of Hull between 2015 and 2017. From 2012 to 2015, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Computer Graphics and Geometry Laboratory at EPFL, working with Mark Pauly. I obtained my PhD in Technical Mathematics from Vienna University of Technology in 2011, under the supervision of Helmut Pottmann. I received my master degree in Computer Science and bachelor degree in Computer Software in 2008 and 2005 respectively, both from Tsinghua University.
