I am passionate about improving human experience when interacting with computers. I am interested in looking beyond the specificity of individual projects to discover the more fundamental research problems, and then to develop generalizable strategies to solve these problems. Looking beyond, I am interested in developing the next generation of interaction paradigms so that we can leverage the full range of human capabilities. I am also interested in combining HCI with AI to create intelligent user experiences.
