I am a full professor, and vice Dean of the School of Computer Software, Tianjin University.

Now I lead the Visual Computing Lab, Tianjin University, and Institute of Data Science, Tianjin University. I am now also the director of Tianjin Key Engineering Center of the Conservation and Promotion of Cultural Heritage

My research interests include image synthesis, visualization and visual analysis.

I received my Ph.D. from Dept. of Computer Science, Tianjin University, in 2004. I am now the vice director of the Tianjin Society of Image and Graphics. I also serve(d) for academic events including the PC Chair of IEEE CGIV, PC co-chair of China CAD&CG 2017, the organizing co-chair of CCF CNCC 2009, VINCI’09 and VINCI’10. I am the general co-chair of VINCI’13, ChinaVis (2015, 2016), Pacific VAST (2015,2016). I also serve(d) as the program committee member or reviewer for many conferences and journals including PacificVis, EuroVis, IEEE Transactions on Computer Graphics and Visualization, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Transactions on Image Processing.
