Research is
to see what everybody else has seen, and
to think what nobody else has thought.

ABOUT ME

EDUCATION

In February 2018, I joined the GeoGazeLab of ETH Zurich as a doctorate student. I finished my Bachelor and Master of Philosophy degree in Computer Science at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, where I defended my Master Thesis on “Understanding User Engagement Level during Tasks via Facial Responses, Eye Gaze and Mouse Movements” in 2017.

RESEARCH

My research interests lie in the field of “Human Computer Interaction”, “Eye-tracking”,"Geographic Information Systems (GIS)" and “User Intention Detection”. Now I am working on the LAMETTA Project.

SERVICE LEARNING

My experience of service-learning starts from joining the pilot service-learning in Cambodia as a student and in the following years I acted as a team assistant in Rwanda and Cambodia project. I also played the role of team leader in student-initiated projects in Cambodia. I would like to express my gratefulness to Dr. Grace Ngai, who is vital to my life as she is the one who taught me programming, supervised my research projects and brought me into the world of service-learning.
