Hi there, this is Qian. I am a CMLH Digital Health fellow and a Ph.D. student in Human-computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Prof. John Zimmerman and Prof. Aaron Steinfeld. My research investigates Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a material for user experience (UX) design. I designed user experience (UX) for multiple real-world, high-consequence AI applications: from intelligent clinical decision support systems to context-aware mobile services, and to applications of Natural Language Generation. Reflecting on this related vein of practice and research, I work to enable more people to better ideate feasible, meaningful and creative forms and functions of AI technologies.
Before CMU, I worked in design consultancy and in the industry (2007-2014). I hold Master of HCI from Carnegie Mellon University, Master of Design, and Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Design from Shanghai Jiaotong University.
I am on the job market this year! I am looking for research positions across academia and industry. Feel free to pin me if you see an opportunity to collaborate!
