I am a second year Ph.D. student at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Dr. Nik Martelaro. I completed my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science with First Class Honors and a full scholarship from HKUST, where I worked with Dr. Xiaojuan Ma and Dr. Kwang-Ting Cheng.

Research Theme

My research is in Designer-AI Interaction. I support designers by (1) building AI-infused design tools and (2) investigating how said tools augment design processes. This research topic is situated at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Vision, and Design Methods.
