Yunsheng Tian

PhD Student

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Yunsheng Tian (田韵声) is a fourth-year PhD student in the Computational Design & Fabrication Group at MIT CSAIL advised by Prof. Wojciech Matusik. His research lies in the intersection of computer graphics, robotics and machine learning.

Before coming to MIT, he obtained the bachelor’s degree from Nankai University, China, advised by Prof. Bo Ren and Prof. Ming-Ming Cheng. He had also worked at Microsoft Research Asia and The University of Hong Kong as a research intern.

Feel free to drop me an email if you are interested in my research or related ideas. We are also hiring interns for research projects occasionally.
