Hi! I am a final-year Computer Science PhD student from Grouplens Research Center at the University of Minnesota. I am luckily advised by Prof. Lana Yarosh. Meanwhile, I have close collaboration with Prof. Feng Qian at USC and Prof. Bo Han at GMU. My research focuses on using XR + AI to support remote learning, collaboration and social connection.
