I am a 3rd year Computer Science Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley. I do research in computational photography and image processing with Prof. Ren Ng. I'm generally interested in image/video enhancement, editing and synthesis.
------ Houston ---- [1,919.5 mi] ---- Berkeley ------
Before coming to the bay, I graduated from Rice University with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, advised by Prof. Ashok Veeraraghavan.

------- Beijing ---- [7,205 mi] ---- Houston -------
I was born and grew up in Beijing, a city that perfectly demonstrates ancientness and modern. I've shot a pile of photographs of my hometown, take a look at my Flickr albums.

I'm interested in computational photography and videography, integrating data-driven approach and physically accurate rendering forward models.
I feel truly fortunate to have collaborated with these inspiring people from the industrial research labs (in chronical order): Vladlen Koltun (Intel), Qifeng Chen (Intel), Kevin Matzen (Facebook), Joon-Young Lee (Adobe), Kalyan Sunkavalli (Adobe) , Zhaowen Wang (Adobe) .

More Projects (Pretty Images)

Here are more projects I did for classes and for fun.

Computer Graphics
Below are some projects I've done throughout this graphics course, covering a variety of cool topics such as rasterizing, texture mapping, geometry processing, ray tracing, etc. Please click on each project to view more pretty high-res images.

More About Cecilia

Photography --- Photos (click me!) are my footprint and memories. I love taking photos of streetviews, nature with symmetry, static objects with granularity and people in actions.
If you find any of these images resonates with you or makes you appreciate this world a tiny weeny more, I'd be so happy .

Travel --- As I visit more places, I meet more people, experience more interesting moments and get to take more photos. My favorite places I've visited so far are Bremen, Interlaken and the summer version of Seattle.

Coffee --- I'm a coffee-addict. More precisely, I'm a coffee-shop-addict. I like to explore different cafes, especially when I travel to different cities and countries. I love to explore the different decors and atmospheres, and sometimes would spend half a day with a cup of Cappucino.
