Research Assistant, supervised by Prof. Xiaogang Jin Summer 2018
Presented a novel shape-constrained ﬁreworks simulation method with rich textures in the HMD (Helmet Mounted Display) virtual environment using sketched feature lines as input.
Introduced a novel point sampling algorithm based on Gaussian curvatures, which not only stores the positions of the selected vertices but also the texture coordinates information for texture display.
Introduced a multi-level explosion process based on k-means clustering algorithm so that the ﬁreworks can dynamically form speciﬁc, visually pleasing shapes.
The paper has been accepted for publication in Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds.
Building Virtual Worlds, Entertainment Technology Center, Programmer Fall 2019
Collaborated with teams of 5 including artists, programmers, and sound designers to develop interactive and immersive experiences cycling totally 5 rounds.
Programmed game mechanics, interfaces, and interactions with Magic Leap, HTC Vive, and Phidgets.
Communicated across diverse roles and made game prototypes effectively under pressure.
Magic Forest, Designer & Developer, Team leader of 4 Jul 2018 – Sep 2018
Developed an educational music game for K-12 children to play and learn based on HTC Vive.
Users finish songs by beating the 8 target bunnies (octaves) in the forest following the rhythm notes with splendid visual effects.
Divided the business logic into 4 modules, including hint-ball (to cue players to hit rabbits in time), hitting state judgment, note bar judgment, and rabbit animation control with AI.
Image Completion with Structure Propagation, Independent Designer & Developer Apr 2018 – Jun 2018
Re-implemented the approach proposed in the paper Image Completion with Structure Propagation (SIGGRAPH 2005) with C++.
User extends a few curves to specify key structure information of the image, and the structure propagation method would find the optimal patches automatically, to remedy the missed structure. Criminisi algorithm is used to fill the rest of unknown regions.
If only a single curve is specified, structure propagation is solved using dynamic programming. When multiple intersecting curves are specified, Belief Propagation algorithm is used to find the optimal patches.
