My main research interests lie in the intersection between Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Specifically, I have been working on creating technologies to support mobile communication and attention, mobile crowdsourced behavioral data collection, and city exploration. Recently, I'm also starting my research in human intelligence interaction and attention in VR. I'm seeking collaborators and students who have the same interest.
Cross-Device Attention & Notification
We aim to create intelligent systems to reduce "notification overload" by studying and modeling people's awareness, interruptibility, receptivity, and opportune moments across-device
Mobile Crowdsourcing & Citizen Participation
We study how to leverage mobile crowdsourcing and to engage citizens to obtain richer human knowledge to augment collected human data for more reliable and useful context-aware proactive services.
Human Intelligence Interaction
We study how to smoothen and sustain the interaction between humans and intelligent agents including chatbots, voice assistants, robots, and context-aware devices.
