Prospective students

As a relatively new research group, we actively seek talented graduate students, postdocs, and undergraduate interns to join us working on exciting research problems in computer graphics, machine learning, scientific computing, and computational fluid dynamics.

[Ph.D.] We seek exceptionally qualified Ph.D. students every year. If you have a strong background in one or more areas I have mentioned above, and are fascinated by the problems we are solving, I encourage you to apply to the Dartmouth Computer Science Ph.D. Program. Students in majors of computer science, applied math or physics, or other related areas are all welcome to apply. All admitted Ph.D. students will receive Fellowship or RA funding support during their studies at Dartmouth.

If you consider me as your potential advisor, please do email me or mention your interest in your application. The admission process is competitive. You are expected to exhibit outstanding academic and research performance related to our group's expertise. As a Ph.D. student in our lab, you will receive rigorous and multi-faceted training to develop your scientific research skills -- as a programmer, a maker, a creator, and sometimes, even as an artist or an aestheticist (yes, an excellent "eye" is important for graphics research). I wish you to be curious and contemplative. Keep you fingers on the keyboard, and stick your mind to solving big problems.

[Undergraduate/MSCS/MSDA] We always welcome and support Dartmouth undergraduate and M.S. students who are interested in gaining research experience in our group. If you are currently studying at Dartmouth and feel interested in our research projects, feel free to send me an email. I will be pleased to schedule a face-to-face meeting with you to discuss your interests, plan, possible projects, and the way you work in our group (e.g., research assistant/summer intern/honors thesis). We prize your creativity, contribution, and the authorship of your work highly, and will give you full support for your future success.

[Visitors] Our group has openings for external research interns every year. We encourage applicants with strong motivation, proficient programming skills, and an exceptional background in computer science, mathematics, or physics. Ideally, each internship lasts for 3-6 months. For students who are interested, please get in touch by email with your CV, a brief description of your skills and interests, and your expected intern duration.
