Xiang Li

Hi, I am Xiang Li, a Year 4 (senior) undergrad from Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University in China & the University of Liverpool in the UK.

I will join the DIVA Group of Institute Polytechnique de Paris (Télécom Paris) and the Augmented Perception Lab at the CMU Human-Computer Interaction Institute as a research intern this summer, co-advised by Jan Gugenheimer and David Lindlbauer.

I have been interning at the Exertion Games Lab of Monash University since 2020 summer, advised by Florian 'Floyd' Mueller and Rakesh Patibanda.

I also work as a research assistant at the X-CHI Lab of Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, with Hai-Ning Liang and Wenge Xu (Birmingham City University).

I am looking for an HCI and XR PhD position starting in the 2022 fall.
