About Me

My name in Chinese is 陈翔, where 翔 means soaring in the sky.

I am an associate professor at the State Key Lab of CAD&CG, and a Qiushi Young Scholar with Zhejiang University. My research interests include physics-based simulation, shape modeling, image manipulation, and computer-aided design. I'm looking for self-motivated students, especially those with strong CS/Mathematics/Physics background. Feel free to drop me an email if you are interested.

I received my Ph.D and B.Sc. from Computer Science College and Cho Kochen Honors College of Zhejiang University, respectively. I was a visiting scholar in Computer Graphics group (C2G2) at Columbia University, and a visiting student in Geometric Modelling and Scientific Visualization (GMSV) Center at KAUST and Data Intelligence and Tools (DIT) group at Microsoft Research Asia.
