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.
Ubiquitous devices have become more and more prevalent. They provide a unique opportunity to capture, model and impact human behavior. However, nowadays our ubiquitous devices around us are not intelligent enough. My research focuses on two aspects: on the one side, I build algorithms and models that can better understand and model human daily behavior. On the other side, I also create novel interaction techniques that better involve and leverage our daily behavior. These two aspects are organically related: the leveraging of human behavior is grounded on an intelligent system that understands what we are doing, thus effectively facilitate our daily lives.
