About me

Who I Am

I’m a second-year Ph.D. student in Human-Centered Computing at University of Florida, advised by Kristy Elizabeth Boyer. I earned my Master’s degree in Information Science at University of Pittsburgh, where I worked closely with Erin Walker and Michael Madaio and Amy Ogan at Human-Computer Interaction Institute, Carnegie Mellon University. I received my bachelor degree from Anhui University in Management Science.

What I Do

My research focuses on Education Technologies and Human-Computer Interaction. I apply human-centered methods to first understand how humans perceive and interact with learning technologies, and then design and implement technology that offers personalized education.

My research particularly aims to answer a key question: How can we design social, collaborative learning environments to improve student motivation and provide personalized learning experiences? Computer-aided learning systems can do more than just present proper pedagogical feedback, but be able to provide affective and engaging learning experiences to the users.
