Dr He Wang


I am an Assistant Professor (Lecturer in UK) at the University of Leeds, UK. My current research interest is mainly understanding crowd behaviors leading to potential applications such as crowd simulation and evaluation. Previously I was a Postdoctoral Associate at Disney Research Los Angeles. I received my PhD in 2012 and did a post-doc afterwards, both at the University of Edinburgh, where I mainly worked on motion control of character, deformable object control and 3D scene analysis.
