Design & Research & Design Research

I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. degree at TU Eindhoven, the Netherlands. My current research focuses on human factor research and interaction design in the domain of automated mobility. I investigate how to facilitate trust relationships between human users and advanced technology and create enjoyable user experiences. As a designer and also researcher, I leverage the innovative and creative features of design activities and artifacts to conduct research.

"Technology should be grounded into our daily life and assist instead of replace human."

Visual Art

Photography serves as the technology that can capture moments in film, for the memories and the imagination. My main interest is portrait, street, event and creative photography.

I am looking for models and artists to create portrait works! Want to to collaborate on photography? Have a talk with me!

Calligraphy I started learning the traditional Chinese painting & calligraphy since I was six years of age. It has been a long journey.

Interested in trying something new? Looking for some fun to do as a group? Check out my Chinese Art Calligraphy & Painting Workshop.

Drawing includes drawing, water color painting (mainly Chinese traditional landscape painting 中国山水画) and illustration. Mainly for fun, also feel like a basic skill as a designerly person...
My tools: pen, paper, ipad, illustrator
Now I am very much interested and learning creative coding!
