Short Bio

Dongyu Liu is currently a PhD candidate under the supervision of Prof. Huamin Qu, in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). He was awarded the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme, which is only provided for the students with outstanding qualities of academic performance, research potential, and leadership abilities. He obtained his B.Eng. degree in Computer Science and Technology from Zhejiang University. During his undergraduate studies, he was selected to the Chu Kochen Honors Program, in which only 400 (out of ~6000 freshmen) top students are thoughtfully selected from excellent senior high graduates. He has worked as an intern in Bosch Research USA from September 2017 to April 2018, Microsoft Research Asia from July 2016 to April 2017, and Wechat Research Group from April 2016 to June 2016. He has won the Microsoft Research Stars of Tomorrow, an award only provided for excellent interns. Up to now, he has published four first-author papers in top journals such as the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG) and ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology (TIST). His research/work has been recognized by many awards including the Best Paper Award in IEEE VIS 2018, the Honorable Mention Award for IEEE VAST Grand Challenge 2015, and the APICTA Merit Award in E-Learning from the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance 2015.
