Hi! I am a senior year student of B.S. Computer Science and B.A. Media and Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
I am currently an undergraduate research assistant at UNC Graphics and Virtual Reality Group, advised by Professor Henry Fuchs. I didn’t fully start my research journey until my senior year. Before diving into academic research, I had experience working in both product management and advertising.
My research interest is in Human-Computer Interaction, specifically in ubiquitous computing. I am passionate about new modalities of interaction between human and machines, as well as emerging interfaces.
The research project I am currently involved in is high-precision gaze tracking, in which I collaborate with Conny Lu, Praneeth Chakravarthula and Nolan Scobie. The ability to push eye-tracking accuracy forward aligns with my research interest in building the next generation of interaction between human and computing systems.
In my spare time, I work on fun projects to try out new things.
Touchless UI (September 2019)
I always aspire to explore interaction beyond keyboards and touch. The advances in Computer Vision allow the interaction system to be recognization based. Building upon a hand tracking model, I designed and implemented interactions to control a youtube video with hand gestures.
All experience contribute to who I am today. Both product management and advertising have cultivated me a strong awareness of design, computing, and human factors.
