I am a first-year PhD student at URCS, working with Dr. Zhen Bai. My research interest and design passion lie in transcending learning for people through design and technology, especially creating innovative, interactive systems to help people develop complex and softer forms of human intelligence, and ultimately realize their own life values.

In 2018, I graduated from Tsinghua University, where I studied Human Factors under Industrial Engineering and got a good understanding of how people interact with systems. Previously, the METALS (Master of Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science) program at CMU offered me a window into the intersection of learning and technology. And now I am about to start my further research exploration in Educational Technology.
