Ling-Hao CHEN     

Hi here, I'm Ling-Hao CHEN (陈凌灏 in Chinese, Evan in English)! Now, I am now a Ph.D. student at Tsinghua University, supervised by Prof. Heung-Yeung Shum (沈向洋 教授). I obtained my bachelor's degree from the School of Computer Science and Technology at Xidian University in 2022. My research interests lie in Character Animation, Digital Generation, and Machine Learning. I am a research intern at the International Digital Economy Academy (IDEA), working closely with Prof. Lei Zhang (张磊 教授).

Address: Room 3908, Building 1, Chang Fu Jin Mao Tower, 5 Shihua Road, Futian District, Shenzhen, P.R. China.

Motto: Seek the truth, practice real skills and do real things! (求真学问,练真本领,做真东西!)
