A Postcard From: Yazhe Feng ’19

Name: Yazhe Feng
Class Year: 2019
Major: Computer Science
Hometown: Hangzhou, China

Internship Placement: Summer Science Research
Job Title: Summer Science Research Intern
Location: Bryn Mawr College

What’s happening at your internship?

My research topic focuses on mesh generation, specifically, converting existing triangulation to quadrangulation. Throughout the summer I have learned a lot more about graph theory and algorithms in mesh generation. I have learned the basic functioning of software, including Triangle and CQMESH. After studying lots of existing works in this field I have decided my direction, which focuses on converting triangulation to quadrangulation with the help of a minimum spanning tree.

Why did you apply for this internship?

I have never learned anything about graphics before, and I thought it might be an interesting subject to try.

What has been your favorite part of this internship?

It is amazing how our professor gave us considerable space for us to investigate in whatever topics that we are interested in, and told us that science research does not necessarily lead to positive results, and proving something does not work is also one kind of accomplishment.
