Biography

I am a PhD candidate in Human-Centered Computer program. My research focus is about exploring, designing and evaluating hand-held augmented reality game experience. I've designed and evaluated a few handheld AR games, such as BragFish and ARt of Defense. I am currently working on another handheld AR game, NerdHerder. By designing and evaluating these AR games, I am interested in answering research questions about how the social game experience is shaped and supported by game design, in which the interface and interaction design plays a fundamental role.
