I am an assistant professor in the School of Computing Science, Simon Fraser University, the director of Master of Science in Professional Computer Science, and the director of research at MARZ. I lead and manage several industrial and research projects related to Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Computational Fabrication.
My main research interest is Computer Graphics with specialty in Geometric Modeling, Digital Fabrication, Machine Learning, and Computer Vision (Google Scholar). I have received several awards including NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship, J.B. Hyne Research Innovation Award, Michael A. J. Sweeney Award, and Teaching Excellence Award.

I am only looking for exceptional grad students. Please send me your resume and I will set up an interview if I see fit. Otherwise, you can apply directly and add my name as your potential supervisor.
