Opening PhD and Master Positions
Yangang Wang is currently an associate professor in School of Automation at Southeast University (SEU). Before joining in SEU, he worked as a research scientist at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA) from 2014 to 2017. He received his Ph.D. in 2014 from Department of Automation at Tsinghua University, advised by Prof. Qionghai Dai. His primary research area involves in Computer Vision, Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality. His most recent research interest is dynamic shape reconstruction and human motion capture with single or sparse cameras (a.k.a. markerless motion capture), including
  • 3D/4D capture, modeling and reconstruction
  • Hand motion acquisition, modeling and simulation
  • Body motion modeling, simulation and control
  • Tiny motion or vibration sensing, measurement and analysis
He is the paper reviewer of SIGGRAPH / TVCG / TPAMI / CVPR / ICCV / AAAI and etc.
