Research

I am especially interested in techniques that can link the 3D world and human perception.

I am currently focusing on using learning techniques to solve problems in two complementary fields: geometric modeling and 3D vision. My (future) goal is to develop an artificially intelligent agent that can understand our 3D world through proactive interactions.
