I am a senior undergraduate student from the School of Information Science and Technology, Tsinghua University. I am expected to graduate with a Bachelor of Engineering in Automation in July 2022. Currently, I am doing research with Professor Yuntao Wang at the Pervasive Interaction (PI) Lab in Human-Computer Interaction, Ubiquitous Computing, and Health Sensing. I am also a research intern at the Ubiquitous Computing Lab of the University of Washington under the supervision of Professor Shwetak Patel. Besides, I am collaborating with Doctor QianYao Xu at Tsinghua Future Lab in Computational Design. Currently, I am looking for a Ph.D. position in HCI in the 2022 fall.
My research focuses on creating technology to enable non-invasive and ubiquitous health monitoring and developing computational design tools accessible to all users. These researches serve the same ambitious goal: bringing enabling technologies and healthcare to all. To this end, I employ my knowledge in machine learning, computer vision, signal processing, and user-centered design principles.
Coming from an engineering background, I think of computer science as a tool that can help scale and accelerate development. However, it is not the ultimate key to bringing social changes. Technology should cooperate closely with sociology, human-centered design, medicine, art, e.t.c to have an immediate impact. Noticing the interdisciplinary essence of HCI, I took various courses in computer science, electrical engineering, HCI, user-centered design, and art. Thus, I gained much knowledge and project experience in these fields. Check out some of my projects here!
During my study at Tsinghua, I have developed a broad range of skills with multiple expertise areas, which brings me the skillset with the shape of a comb. I will keep this figure below updated, and I can't wait to add more awesome skills.
