NYU CUSP Graduate StudentsFall 2017 Cohort
MS Class of 2018
I am a HKUST graduate (2016) in Interdisciplinary bachelor’s program of Environmental Technology with minor in Information Technology. I worked as a research-assistant in HKUST-DT SymLabs (Computer Vision and Augmented Reality Lab) for a year, where my research was on ways of improving User Interaction with the AR devices, like Google Glass. Currently, I have a working paper in this research area. My passion lies in the interdisciplinary field of computer science and environment wherein I can use my computer science skills to tackle real-world issues.
