I am an Assistant Professor in Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research interests include Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), accessibility, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), and AI-powered interactive systems. I design and build intelligent interactive systems to enhance human abilities. Via my research, I seek to understand the challenges and needs of people with diverse abilities, and design systems and interaction techniques to empower them in real life activities as well as the emerging virtual worlds. I received my Ph.D. degree from Cornell Tech, Cornell University, and B.E. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from Tsinghua University.
