I am a second-year Ph.D. student working with Anind K. Dey and Jennifer Mankoff in the Information School at the University of Washington – Seattle. Prior to joining UW, I obtained my Bachelor’s degrees in Industrial Engineering (major) and Computer Science (minor) from Tsinghua University in 2018.

I am excited about on two aspects in the intersection of human-computer interaction, ubiquitous computing and machine learning: 1) the modeling of human behavior (e.g., routine) and 2) novel interaction techniques.
