About me

I am a 3rd year Computer Science undergraduate at HKUST and am currently interning at the HCI Initiative, supervised by Prof. Xiaojuan Ma. I previously interned at the Robotics Institute, supervised by Prof. Kwang-Ting Cheng. I was an exchange student at UW where I interned at the Interactive Data Lab, supervised by Prof. Jeffrey Heer. I also stayed in Stanford for two months for the International Honors Program.

Research Interests

I am passionate about solving high-level HCI challenges with low-level Computer Vision and thoughtful design. Currently, my work focuses on dynamic AR synthesis to empower students with accessible, tangible, and modular learning experiences.
