Research: Lifan's research focuses on appearance modeling and physically-based rendering. He works on appearance prefiltering of micro-structure materials, which reduces the scene complexity and preserves its appearance to the maximum amount. He is also interested in applying sparse sampling and reconstruction techniques to Monte Carlo denoising and complex appearance simulation.

Lifan Wu is a fourth-year PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering Department at University of California, San Diego, advised by Prof. Ravi Ramamoorthi. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Tsinghua University in 2015. His research interest is physically-based rendering, including realistic appearance modeling, sparse sampling and reconstruction of visual signals, and light transport.
