Cheng Lin 林铖

Researcher, Tencent

I'm currently a researcher at Tencent Game AI Research Center. I received my Ph.D. from The Univeristy of Hong Kong (HKU), advised by Prof. Wenping Wang. Before that, I did my bachelor's degree in Shandong University. My research interests include geometric modeling, 3D vision, shape analysis and computer graphics.
