Dynamic Graphics Project Lab, University of Toronto


I am a Ph.D student supervised by Prof. Daniel Wigdor at Dynamic Graphics Project (DGP) lab, University of Toronto. My research interest is constructing flexible digital environments that are able to adapt to the dynamic and varied needs of creativity tasks. To achieve this, I have developed applications that break the confinement of widgets around digital content. Before that, I have been working on other HCI topics such as wearable computing and touch screen interactions.

I received my Master's degree from University of Toronto at 2015, under the supervision of Prof. Daniel Widgor. Before coming to Toronto, I completed my Bachelor's degree (with honour) on Computer Science at Tsinghua University at 2013.

You can find my C.V. here.
