The Design Computing and Extended Reality Group (DCXR) at the Computer Science Department of George Mason University has 2 PhD openings. We are looking for PhD students passionate about conducting research in Computer Graphics, Computer Vision, Virtual/Augmented/Mixed Reality, Human-Computer Interaction, Robotics, Game Design, Computational Design and other related fields.



Recent international PhD graduates from our department have landed prominent industry jobs (e.g., Google, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft) and faculty positions in the US and around the world. Check out some of the PhD alumni here.

Please check out our website for more details about our research and background.

Visiting Students

If you plan to visit our group (whether you are from US/overseas), please email me about your background and research interests. Please also include your CV. Please note that our lab generally doesn't have funding for visitors.

Honors Thesis/Independent Study (for GMU Students)

GMU students in my class: if you are interested in doing research with me, please come talk to me after class or during my office hours.

If you want to do an Honors Thesis/independent study with me, please email me. Let me know about your interests. You must have strong mathematics and programming background. Preferably, you should have taken a computer graphics / computer vision / game programming / machine learning course, or you should have strong passion and background in these topics.

Other Info

While I expect you to have a good command of English, FYI, I speak fluent English, Mandarin and Cantonese. We can speak any of these languages during our discussion, whatever works.

Our lab has access to many cool devices (e.g., 3D printers, VR and AR devices such as HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Microsoft Holoens). You can make use of these devices to work out creative projects.
