My name is Bingjie Yu. I'm a PhD student in HCI at University of Bath.

Research & Works

As an human-computer interaction (HCI) researcher, it is always a question for myself that 'Can we encourage our users think more constructively while surfing online'. With this high-level question, I am on an adventure of exploring the way people engaging with each other technologically with interdisciplinary approaching in my research. I am also enthusiastic to process my knowledge and skills to work out mysteries about the real-life, which helps me to contribute my expertise in interacting with people to the best.

My current research looks into audiences interactions in different contexts with multimedia, typically the "constructivity" of user comments in the online environment. The aim of the research is to explore the different user experience with different mechanisms of commenting and to study how would the users think and behave more constructively while commenting.
