I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the University of Liverpool, UK. Previously, I received my PhD degree and worked as a Research Fellow at the University of Warwick. Before joining in Warwick, I was a MSc student at Zhejiang University, China.
My research interests lie in how to co-design and co-evaluate user experience in digital contexts, and how to sustain user behaviours and shape behavioural changes. I explore anti-disciplinary methods cutting across boundaries of Data Science, Design Science, and Behavioural Science. I apply technology-inspired, psychology-driven and people-centred approaches in the fields of education, healthcare and wellbeing. I employ applied field-based research methods and intelligent technologies to ensure design is enjoyable, engaging, efficient and effective in order to enhance how people play, study, work and live.
