During my graduate study at UMD, I was supervised by Prof. Huaishu Peng and worked as a research intern within Document Intelligent Lab at Adobe Research. My research interests include virtual reality (VR), computer graphics, and Interactive design.
During Mar. 2019 - July. 2019, I was a research intern in the Team of User Experience Design(UXD) at Lenovo Research.
During Oct. 2018 - Dec. 2018, I was a research intern in the Team of IT-Solution and Process at BMW China AR Lab mentored by Mr. Kai Baier.
In the 2016-2018 academic year, I worked as a research intern at Prof. Wei Liang's lab at BIT.

Real-time Sound Synthesis of Rigidbody Objects
The main contributions of this work are to utilize the mass-spring-damping system to obtain vibrations on collision events and provide an interface for sound simulation in the current mainstream game engine - Unity.
The innovative parts of this project mainly focus on the accelerating techniques for the real-time sound that could also be used for large scenes with even hundreds of objects producing sounds.
