I am a Ph.D. student in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Jason Hong. I work in the broad area of interaction systems. I like to work on the hardest problems - the ones that people assume are impossible to solve. To attack these problems, I spend large chunks of my time playing with Signal Processing, Applied Math, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and using them in interesting ways.
My work has received several awards and honors. Most recently, my work on 'online review comparison' was nominated for the Best Paper award at MobileHCI 2014. My work on 'touch interaction data mining' was awarded ' Best of 2013' Notable Paper by ACM Computing Review. In 2008, I won the 1st place in Microsoft ImagineCup's Software Design Competition in China Local Final and 4th place in the worldwide Finals at Paris France.
Before coming to CMU, I have done practical work in industrial research at Yahoo Research (full-time researcher), Microsoft Research Asia(2-time intern), Bosch Research(2-time intern), and Chinese Academy of Science (summer visiting student).
