Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate at Human-Computer Interaction Initiative, Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). I am under the supervision of Prof. Xiaojuan Ma. Prior to that, I obtained my master degree (M.Sc.) in Information Systems from Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) in 2013 and my bachelor degree (B.B.A.) in Management Information Systems from Northeastern University (NEU) in 2012.

My major research interests encompass data analysis and representation, visualization, and affective design within Human-Computer Interaction field.
