Dr. Guoxin Fang is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He received his Ph.D. degree in Design Engineering from Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, in 2022. He also holds a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Beijing Institute of Technology, which he obtained in 2016. Prior to joining CUHK, he worked as a Postdoctoral research associate in digital manufacturing at the University of Manchester, UK.

Dr. Fang’s research focuses on the development of computational techniques to advance manufacturing and robotic systems. He has published over 20 research works in the fields of digital manufacturing, computational design, and robotics. Dr. Fang’s research has been recognized with several awards, including the Best Paper Award at the 2022 SIGGRAPH Asia Conference and the Best Paper Award at the ASME IDETC-CIE 2023 conference. He is a member of ASME, IEEE, ACM (SIGGRAPH), and serves as a committee member of the Symposium on Solid & Physical Modeling (SPM) and the ASME Computers and Information in Engineering (CIE) Division.
