Creation and Animation of a Talking Head with Lip Sync and Expressions

As a sophomore, I was invited to participate in the prestigious Undergraduate Research Experience on CAmpus (URECA) program at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, during which I was advised by Prof. Chng Eng Siong. I carried out a literature review, during which I identified some key challenges in the development of talking heads with synchronized lip movements and expressions. I proposed solutions to those problems, and helped a senior implement a working system. My poster for this project won the second prize in a University-wide poster competition for URECA students.
