I am currently a postdoc working with Prof. Takeo Igarashi at the University of Tokyo. Prior to that I received the Ph.D. degree from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, supervised by Prof. Chiew-Lan Tai, and I also worked closely with Prof. Hongbo Fu.
My research interests are in computer vision and graphics, especially in video analysis and user interface design.
