Researching on Human-AI coexistence...


About me

I am currently a second-year PhD student in Information Science at the University of Washingtion. I'm fortunate to be advised by Dr.Lucy Lu Wang and Dr.Katharina Reinecke.

Before my PhD, I spent four amazing years at Middlebury College from which I obtained my Bachelor's of Art in Psychology and Mathematics. Meanwhile, I learned to explore and appreciate the perspectives from a variety of disciplines including philosophy, anthropology, and architecture design.

My research interests derive from the intersection of psychology, humanties, and Human-AI interaction. My research examines how individuals engage with AI systems differently and what can (cannot) facilitate effective Human-AI collaboration.

Outside research, I enjoy running, playing squash, and finding new cooking recipes.
