I am a staff researcher at UC San Diego, working with Hao Su, Angel X. Chang and Xiaolong Wang.

Before coming to UCSD, I received my bachelor degree in Computer Science from Zhejiang University, with High Honors and minor in Electronic Engineering.

I was a research assistant at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, advised by Cewu Lu. Before that, I did a research internship at University of Alberta, hosted by Russell Greiner.

We build SAPIEN simulator: an interaction-rich and physics-realistic simulation environment integrating PhysX engine and ROS control interface. I lead the team of building SAPIEN dataset: more than 2K 3D articulated models with 14K movable parts. The dataset is richly annotated with kinematic part motions and dynamic interactive attributes to support robot interaction.

Miscellaneous

Trivia

I am famous for a strong memory, which always enables me to get a high score in a very short period of time :-D I lost my hearing for a long time in 20s, fortunately, I got recovered when I had learnt how to read lips. My avatar is from Zombie Dance, a vocaloid song made by ilem.

Hobbies

Cooking I cook in western way but with Chinese seasonings. Games I am good at strategy games, board games, poker games, etc. Music I enjoy classical music and electronic music, especially trance. My faves: Daft Punk Approaching Nirvana
