Zicheng Liao
Associate professor, Ph.D.
 
Computer Science, Zhejiang University
Adjunct w/ ZJU-UIUC Institute
address: Yuquan campus, Lake district, Hangzhou CN

I am now based at the College of Computer Science & Technologies, Zhejiang University in Hangzhou - China, where I had four wonderful years of my college life. The city is featured (among many other things) with a Lake, a tradition of tea plantation and a Song dynasty pagoda.

I received a MS and Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from University of Illinois (UIUC) with the advisorship of Y. Yu and David A. Forsyth. After some years of work in computer graphics and vision, I am now partly interested in the digitization of Real persons and application.
