Short Bio

I am a fourth year PhD student in the Department of Computer Sicence at Dartmouth College, and a student member of XDiscovery Lab, the HCI research group of Dartmouth led by Prof. Xing-Dong Yang. My research interests lie in the area of human-computer interaction (HCI), particularly at the intersection of novel input techniques and text entry. Before coming to Dartmouth, I obtained my bachelor degree at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in 2018.
