I am a PhD student in Computer Science department at University of British Columbia.
My research interest lies at the intersection of Computer Science and Cognitive Psychology, including Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and applications of machine learning for HCI. I am currently in the process of defining my PhD topic but in general I am interested in affective haptics, and using physiological data to determine affect.
My MSc. thesis was an effort to understand the effect of painterly depiction on users’ perception of facial expressions in animated character sequences. The focus of the work is on color and to some extent textures in painterly rendered sequences.
My PhD supervisor is Karon MacLean.
