News & Events

• I am looking for strongly-motivated PhD and Master students to join my research team. If you are interested in computer graphics and computer vision, please contact me.

• I have left University of Leeds and joined Zhejiang University again. This move is purely due to family reasons; I love living in Leeds, UK and being a lecturer there. I really appreciate the support and help from my colleagues (Mrs. Judi Drew, Mrs. Gaynor Butterwick, Prof. Hamish Carr, Dr. He Wang, Dr. Tom Kelly, Prof. Roy Ruddle, Prof. Andy Bulpitt, Prof. Anthony G Cohn, Prof. Peter Jimack, Dr. Matteo Leonetti, Prof. Mehmet Dogar, ...). I will always keep in memory the wonderful experience in Leeds.

• [May 2020] I will serve on the Program Committee of Pacific Graphics 2020.

• [April 2020] I will serve on the Program Committee of 3DV 2020.

• [May 2018] I served as the Organizing Committee Co-Chair of Computational Visual Media 2019 at Bath, UK.

Research

My research focuses on the acquisition, creation and processing of 3D contents in Computer Graphics and Computer Vision. I have conducted research on 3D scene/object modeling, digital avatar creation, structure/function aware geometry processing, computer animation and 3D printing.

Biography

Tianjia Shao is a ZJU100 Young Professor in the State Key Laboratory of CAD&CG, Zhejiang University. Previsouly He was an Assistant Professor (Lecturer in UK) in the School of Computing, University of Leeds, UK. He received his PhD in Computer Science from Institute for Advanced Study, Tsinghua University, under the guidance of Prof. Baining Guo, and his B.S. from the Department of Automation, Tsinghua University. During his PhD, he spent one year as a visiting researcher working with Prof. Niloy Mitra in University College London and four years as a research intern in Internet Graphics Group, Microsoft Research Asia. After that, he was an Assistant Researcher in the State Key Laboratory of CAD&CG, Zhejiang University.
