About me

I am a PhD student in Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Beijing Normal University in English language literature, focusing on language education. I have taught English in various public schools and private institutions, including 101 High School, Meitan Qiushi High School, Knovva Academy, and Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press.

Research Area

My research interests lie at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and Learning Science.

I am interested in learning sciences and technologies. My work touches on artificial intelligence (AI) in education, intelligent tutoring systems (ITS), language technology, educational robots and XR in education. I am curious about how educational technologies can support students learn more effectively and educators to work more efficiently.

I have also worked on projects related to social computing and computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), primarily in expert-guided crowdsourcing and learnersourcing.
