About Me

Thinker, Researcher, Creative Doer

My name is Wenchao Li (李文超).

I am a Ph.D. student at the VisLab, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). My advisor is Professor Huamin Qu.

Prior to joining HKUST, I received my master degree in Computer Technology from University of Chinese Academy of Sciences and my bachelor degree in Computer Science from Sichuan University. During my Master’s program, I was advised by Professor Hui Huang and Professor Ruizhen Hu.

My research interests include Information Visualization, Visual Analytics, and Shape Analysis.

Learning to Predict Part Mobility from a Single Static Snapshot

We introduce a method for learning a model for the mobility of parts in 3D objects. Our method allows not only to understand the dynamic functionalities of one or more parts in a 3D object, but also to apply the mobility functions to static 3D models.

Co-Locating Style-Defining Elements on 3D Shapes

We introduce a method for co-locating style-defining elements over a set of 3D shapes. Our goal is to translate high-level style descriptions, such as "Ming" or "European" for furniture models, into explicit and localized regions over the geometric models that characterize each style. For each style, the set of style-defining elements is defined as the union of all the elements that are able to discriminate the style. Another property of the style-defining elements is that they are frequently-occurring, reflecting shape characteristics that appear across multiple shapes of the same style.
