Hi! You can call me Zihan
I am an undergraduate from Zhejiang University, majoring in industrial design at Computer Science College and minoring in CHU KOCHEN Honors college's advanced education engineering class. I was fortunately chosen to be a member of UCLA HCI Research, advised by Prof. Xiang 'Anthony' Chen and Prof. Yang Zhang. Besides, I was lucky enough to have the chance to work closely with Prof. Cheng Zhang in the SciFi Lab of Cornell University.
I focus on HCI and Ubicomp, and my experience spans the domain of Sensing, Wearables, Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Accessibility, Cognition, Fabrication and Healthcare. My recent works are mainly around sensing systems, and I try to explore sensing systems from these three perspectives.
- Firstly, I enjoy building sensing systems from the bottom to the top, including fabrication and hardware assembly, deep learning algorithm development, and computational interaction design.
- Secondly, I try to measure in what ways sensing systems will change people's attention, perception, cognition, and behavior.
- Finally, I would like to explore intelligent user interfaces based on user-centered design, through which sensing system might play a great application value in many fields, such as health, special population assistance, and so on.
Besides, I like to embrace the challenge, change, and the journey from zero to one. Before started HCI research, I was a martial arts athlete and a UX designer.
I am applying for a Ph.D. program Fall 2022. You can check in my CV for further information.
