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

Research & Works

As a Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) researcher, it is always a question for myself that 'How can we help our social interaction through technology in a positive way'. 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 moderation in online communities, typically using care as a lens to explore normative processes in online community moderation. This research will explore how researchers could make use of care-as-nurture when designing support for online communities as a whole, and in particular for the moderators who care for them. I am now also co-chairing HCI Seminar at University of Bath.

I am now a PhD student in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at Dept. of Computer Science, University of Bath, working with Dr. Leon Watts. I received MSc in Human-Computer Interaction (09/2015 - 09/2016) also from University of Bath, and BSc(Eng) with Honours Telecommunications Engineering with Management (09/2011 - 07/2015) from Queen Mary University of London and Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications.

In my spare time, I spend a lot of time travelling and I really enjoy hiking + museums. I like exploring (taking) random photos. Also I enjoy playing "portable" musical instruments (ukulele and kalimba recently).
