I am a PhD student within the Open Lab, Newcastle University. My research interest involves human computer interaction, digital cultural heritage (especially intangible cultural heritage) and interaction design.
Prior to my studies at Newcastle University, I lived in China where I completed my bachelor’s degree in Fine arts, as well as my master’s degree in Interactive Media at Zhejiang University. During the period of my studies, I used to be a Chinese ink painter during my undergraduate study, which was later followed by being a research designer at International Design Institute (IDI) of Zhejiang University. During this period, I gained an extensive background of academic research experience from working with communities such as Casio, Philips and Alibaba. The main projects which I focused on were artistic interaction design projects aimed for the elderly.
I aim to continue exploring my research interests through my current PhD in Computer Science in Open Lab, Newcastle University in which I intend to continue working on my ongoing research into using interactive digital media to support cross-cultural aesthetic appreciation of gestural intangible cultural heritage; and enhancing the appreciation of traditional Chinese painting using interactive technology.
