I am currently a Human-AI Researcher. In the past, I was a full-stack developer, and I aspire to become an entrepreneur in the future. My present research is centered on the design of collaboration systems that facilitate human interaction with AI-driven Programming Tools. Additionally, I am focusing on Social Computing Systems that promote community building and engagement on online social medias.
I am pursuing my Thesis-based Master's in Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, mentored by Dr. Jian Zhao of the WatVis Lab at UWaterloo. In the past, I was guided by Dr. Zhicong Lu from DEER Lab and Dr. Can Liu of the ERFI Lab at CityU HK. After obtaining my Master's, I would like to continue on a PhD journey, continuing my research in Human-AI Interaction & Social Computing.
I am open to collaborating on research projects and actively seeking a PhD opportunity.
This work explores literature from Cognitive Science to synthesize relevant theories and findings for the HCI audience to reference. Thanks to wonderful supervisor Can Liu and co-authors, Brinda Mehra and Kejia Shen.
I'm coming to the CHI23 conference at Hamburg, German in 2023. I will present my work on the collaboration between human and code generation models. I will also present my work on moderating online social media and fostering the sense of community.
Wizundry is a WoZ platform that allows multiple Wizards to collaboratively operate a speech-to-text based system remotely. Our findings reveal the promises and challenges of the multi-Wizard approach and open up new research questions.
A narrative-based viewer participation tool that utilizes a dynamic graphical plot to reflect chatroom negativity. We discovered that StoryChat encouraged viewers to contribute prosocial comments, increased viewer engagement, and fostered viewers' sense of community.
Exploring speech input in HCI, we address editing challenges. Our study combines Cognitive Science with HCI, revealing memory patterns and proposing new interaction concepts for efficient speech editing.
