I am an HCI researcher, design engineer, and artist.

Currently I am a Master of Design student at College of Engineering and an HCI Researcher at the Berkeley Institute of Design, advised by Shm Almeda and Professor Björn Hartmann (EECS) at UC Berkeley. Before joining UC Berkeley, I received my bachelor's in Industrial Design from Tsinghua University. During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a researcher at Professor Lintao Tang's Group.

I have a strong background in design and engineering, and a keen interest in music and fine arts. My research interests lie at the intersection of human-computer interaction, ubiquitous computing, tangible UI, creative use of sound and music, novel design methods, and applications for AI.
