Shichao Zhao | Doctoral Trainee

Shichao Zhao

I am doing my Computer Science PhD under the supervision of Peter Wright and David Kirk within the Open Lab. I have a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts along with a master’s degree in Digital Media and Technology, both of which I obtained in Zhejiang University. Before I came to the UK, I used to be a Chinese ink painter during my undergraduate study. After that I have worked as a research designer at inLab-Information and Interaction Design Lab in Zhejiang University.

My research interest involves digital technologies, cultural heritage (especially intangible cultural heritage) digital cultural learning and interactive transcultural understanding. I'm particularly keen to expand research on using interactive digital media to support transcultural understanding of intangible traditional cultural heritage-Chinese puppetry. I am currently working on the interactive digital video puppet gestures library that through recording professional British and Chinese puppeteers’ gestures as well as puppets' gestures use motion capture and establish a digital gesture library based on the movements that have been captured.
