Biography

I am a Ph.D. student in Information Science at Cornell University. I'm working with Prof. Shiri Azenkot at Cornell Tech. My research interest is Human-Computer Interaction, including augmented reality, accessibility, and tangible interaction. I aim to create novel interactive systems to enhance human abilities. Before arriving at Cornell, I got my Bachelor and Master Degree in Computer Science at Tsinghua University.
