My name is Zhenhui Peng (彭振辉). I am a third-year PhD student majored in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in department of Computer Science and Engineering(CSE), Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). My supervisor is Dr. Xiaojuan Ma. Before that, I got my Bachelor degree in ESE from Nanjing University in 2017. My current research interests are in human-agent interaction (e.g., Human-Robot Interaction, chatbot / bot design) and social media (e.g., online mental health community).
