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 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 online, especially
when participating in debates. I am now also co-chairing
HCI Seminar at University of Bath.
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).
