Yajie Zhao(赵雅洁)

I'm Yajie Zhao,  my research interests are human face/body reconstruction, tracking, performance capturing and applications in VR/AR . I'm also interested in problem solving related to computer graphics, computer vision and image processing areas. 

I'm currently a Research Associate in USC-ICT, supervised by Dr. Hao Li. I got my Ph.D in computer science from University of Kentucky under the supervision of Dr. Ruigang Yang. Before that, I got my B.S. degree in computer science from Xi'an Jiaotong University in China.

​Here is my CV.
