About Me

Yixin Hu

Pixel Labs, Tencent America

I'm currently a Senior Graphics Researcher at Pixel Labs, Tencent America. I obtained my doctoral degree from Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University where I joined Geometric Computing Lab and started working with professor Daniele Panozzo. Before that, I got my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Zhejiang University, China, in 2016.

My research interests are Computer Graphics and Geometry Processing. My current research direction is triangular/tetrahedral meshing and its application, e.g. FEM-based physical simulation. I would love to explore more applications of triangle meshes and tetrahedral meshes.

My research has been recognized by Adobe Research Fellowship (2019), Jacob T. Schwartz Ph.D. Fellowship (2019), and Sandra Bleistein Prize (2021).

Here is my CV.

(My Chinese name is 胡译心. The closest pronunciation of my name in English is /ee-shin/ /hu:/.)
