  • I am a graduate student at the School of Computer Sciences in Carnegie Mellon University. I major in Educational Technology and Applied Learning Sciences at Human-Computer Interaction Institute.
  • My academic advisor is Prof. Carolyn Rose from Langauge Technology Institute (LTI) in CMU.
    I also work closely in research with Prof. Vincent Aleven from HCII CMU, Prof. Joseph Jay Williams from Computer Science department, University of Toronto, and the amazing Ph.D. students and post-doc in CMU HCII and LTI.

  • In my capstone, I do data mining and UX research work for Renaissance Learning, an international learning analytics company that makes cloud-based, K-12 educational software. RL has one of the world’s largest educational data base.

    Research Interest

    My research focus on learning science and technology, including intelligent tutoring systems(ITS), language technology and learning analytics, to make education easy and effective.

    I also study mechanism of crowdsourcing and teacher-sourcing, to improve the ITS development and design process, and increase teachers’ configurability.
