Yuanming Hu 胡渊鸣
I am a first-year Ph.D. student at MIT EECS, supported by Edwin Webster Graduate Fellowship.
Currently, my major research interest is computer graphics (physically based simulation, rendering, and computational photography). I also worked on deep learning and computer vision, during my internship with Dr. Stephen Lin at Microsoft Research Asia.
I graduated with honor from Tsinghua Univesity (Yao class) in July 2017. My undergraduate thesis is on automatic photo post-processing using reinforcement learning and adversarial learning.
ACM Transactions on Graphics
To be presented@SIGGRAPH'18
Visiting Student@The University of Pennsylvania 2017.7-2017.8
I visited Prof. Chenfanfu Jiang during summer 2017. We developed a novel Material Point Method. More details coming after the paper is published.
Research Intern@Microsoft Research Asia 2016.9-2017.6
Computer vision research with Dr. Stephen Lin and Dr. Baoyuan Wang. We developed a novel color constancy algorithm that outperforms the previous state of the art with a 100-fold speed increase, and a practical generative adversarial network (combined with reinforcement learning) that is capable of processing images with no resolution limits.
Undergraduate Visiting Researcher@Stanford University 2016.6-2016.8
With Prof. Ron Fedkiw, I developed a novel line segment based reconstruction algorithm for fine tree details where previous methods do not perform well.
Internship Student@The University of Tokyo 2016.3-2016.6
Computer graphics research (physically based animation and rendering) with Prof. Seiichi Koshizuka and Prof. Toshiya Hachisuka. I implemented 10+ graphics papers during this internship and designed a software framework for unified simulation and rendering, which turns out to be important components of Taichi.
