Hello I'm

Yuxing Qiu

I'm currently pursuing a Ph.D. at UCLA Computer Sicence, co-adviced by Prof. Demetri Terzopoulos and Prof. Chenfanfu Jiang.
My research interests focus on high performance computing and physics-based simulation.
Before that I worked at VCLA, studing physical commonsense and cognitive simulation.
