Xinyue Chen


Hi, I'm Xinyue Chen. I am currently a second-year doctoral student at Computer Science and Engineering, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, supervised by Prof. Xu Wang. Previously, I received my B.S. in the Department of Information Management from Peking University , advised by Prof. Pengyi Zhang

Research interests

I conduct research in the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction, Learning Science and Collaboration. I designed and developed human-AI collaborative tools to support communication, discussion, and collaboration in both work and educational settings. My research aims to help people have a more equal and engaged group discussion and collaboration experience by designing novel interaction techniques to scaffold and reshape group dynamics. I explored novel interaction and communication mechanism to help underrepresented students to engage in conversation more flexibly. I design human-AI collaborative tools to help people restructure the discussion and make marginalized voices be seen by others.

I'm actively seeking for HCI research internship!
