I'm Cheng'an He (何城安), a first-year Ph.D. student at Yale University, where I joined the Computer Graphics Group and started working with Prof. Julie Dorsey, Prof. Holly Rushmeier and Prof. Theodore Kim. My research interests are primarily in Computer Graphics, including appearance modeling, physics-based simulation and geometry processing. Currently, my work spans appearance modeling and physics-based simulation, with a focus on modeling the appearance changes under deformation and phase transition.

Prior to Yale, I received my bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Technology from Zhejiang University in 2019, under the supervision of Prof. Hongzhi Wu.

Summer 2018

Computer graphics research with Prof. Michael Neff. We implemented a system for real-time 3D scene reconstruction.


MISC

My legal name should be Chengan He, which pronounces like Cheng--An--Ho in Chinese. Without the apostrophe ('), however, someone may mistakenly pronounce it like Chen--Kan--Ho, causing funny mistakes in the conversation. (*/ω\*)
