Hi! My name is Xin. My thesis topic is on dialog interaction from historical personal collections, advised by Doug Oard.

In 2019 and 2020, I was fortunate to intern at Adobe Research mentored by Eunyee Koh, Ryan Rossi et al. on ML techniques for visual analytics. Prior to candidacy, it was my pleasure contributing to computational sensemaking and creativity led by Joel Chan from HCIL.

Previously, I obtained a MS in Language Technologies from Carnegie Mellon University (2018) and a BEng in Software Engineering from Chu Kochen Honors College, Zhejiang University (2016).



The Google Scholar profile also includes technical reports.


The piano study supports me through accessibility challenge of hyperhidrosis (slippery in keys).
