I am an assistant professor
at Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, The University of New Mexico. I received my Ph.D degree in Computer Science with
of Computer Science at The
University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). My current research mostly focuses on computer graphics and related
topics. More specifically, my research interests include deformable model, physics-based animation/simulation, medical imaging
analysis and visualization.
|3D roadway pavement reconstruction & analysis
Using common depth sensor to capture/reconstruct the 3D geometry of the roadway pavement surface and analyzing the distress automatically.
Reduce the DOF number as well as the streaming data size in networked environment using different simulation strategy. Package delay can be well-handled based on the linearized time integration formulation. [video]

Multi-domain subspace deformation
Extremely fast deformation simulation algorithm using domian decomposition. Subspaces are built locally with carefully-designed bases which do not cause any locking and over-constrainting problem. FE mesh over 200,000 elements can be simulated in real-time. [video1] [video2] [video3]

Visualization of hunam tongue
Physics-based visualization combining modeling reduction and motion capture techniques: fast and plausiable visualization can be provided in real-time for specified hunman speech tasks. Comprehensive deformation analysis tool is also equipped in the framework. [video]

GPU-aided lung tumor tracking
Fast tracking lung tumor for patients with radiation therapy. Precisely and timely tracked tumor movement pattern could help dose delivery with higher accurately. 1000 time performance acceleration is achieved with GPU based SAT. [video]

Spectral hybrid simulation
By assigning only rigid modes to regions of the FE mesh, fast hybrid simulation effect can be achieved. This is a natural extension of linear modal analysis with nice and symmetric formulation for both rigid and deformable regions. The properties of fast simulation of modal analysis is also perserved: yes, it is real-time. [video]
