I'm Chu

I am an HCI researcher with a background in urban planning and design, currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Washington.

I am interested in advancing urban science through interactive technology.

I'm dedicated to

Working with a variety of people

The more users I work with, the more I know about accounting for different needs in design.

Making the most of my life experience

The more I experience in life, the easier it is to empathize with others.

My Experience

I was born in an era of rapid Chinese urbanization and later moved to seven different cities across Asia, Europe and America.

Being exposed to multiple waves of culture and social shocks, I experienced the difficulty of navigating through unfamiliar environments at a very young age. Although overwhelming at times, the unique experience has enriched my understanding of diverse cultures, enabled me to value resonance with others, and shaped me into an empathetic designer who seeks to honour human emotions.

As my most respected artist Isamu Noguchi once wrote: "To be hybrid anticipates the future."
