I'm a Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) researcher, currently an assistant professor appointed by Department of Computer Science at City University of Hong Kong.

My primary research seeks to enhance individuals' everyday health and well-being through unlocking the potential of ubiquitous computing technologies. Specifically, I build multimodal systems (e.g., mobile apps, Alexa skills) to support self-tracking, design interventions to encourage health behaviors, and explore opportunities for utilizing personal data in clinical contexts. My work encompasses all the phases of human-centered design, including collecting empirical understandings of humans, developing interactive systems, and understanding how people use these systems in real-world settings.

I earned my Ph.D. in Information Studies from the University of Maryland in 2022, advised by Dr. Eun Kyoung Choe at HCIL. My dissertation is titled "Promoting Rich and Low-Burden Self-Tracking With Multimodal Data Input." I completed my master in Information Sciences & Technology at Penn State in 2017, and my BEng in Computer Science at Southeast University (China) in 2015. Outside school, I've worked as a User Experience (UX) Researcher Intern at Meta and Google.
