I am a lecturer in computer science at the University of Hull. My primary research interest is in digital design tools and shape optimization techniques that facilitate manufacturing. One example are the computational design tools for freeform architecture, which search for shapes that conform to the design intent while reducing the fabrication cost.

Before coming to Hull, 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. Before that, I received my master degree in Computer Science and bachelor degree in Computer Software in 2008 and 2005 respectively, both from Tsinghua University.
