Prof. Baciu is a professor in the Department of Computing at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.  He holds degrees in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics and a PhD degree in Systems Design Engineering from University of Waterloo. He has been a member of the Waterloo Computer Graphics Lab and the Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence group.

Prof. Baciu is the founding director of the Graphics and Multimedia Applications (GAMA) and Big Data Visual Analytics Laboratories at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. His group conducts research in data visualization, image analysis, 3D motion capture analysis, animation, collision detection, deformable objects, geometric modeling. He has co-authored two books and over 130 papers in the area of Computer Graphics and Image Processing in top conferences, such as CVPR, ACM SIGGRAPH, Eurographics, Pacific Graphics, and top journals including IEEE TVCG, IEEE TIP, IEEE TSMC, ACM TIST, PR, TRJ. Prof. Baciu has served as chair of international conference committees such as Pacific Graphics, Virtual Reality Software and Technology (VRST), Eurographics, Computer Graphics International, CAD/Graphics, and Computer Animation and Social Agents (CASA), Cognitive Informatics. His research interests include high performance collision detection, motion synthesis and dynamics of large scale deformable surfaces for virtual clothing, geometric modeling, image processing and scalable micro-surface reconstruction. He is a member of IEEE and ACM.
