My name is Zhenhui Peng (彭振辉). I am a postdoctoral researcher supervised by Prof. Antti Oulasvirta in Aalto University. I studied in a Ph.D. program on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). My Ph.D. supervisor is Prof. Xiaojuan Ma. Before that, I got my Bachelor degree in ESE from Nanjing University in 2017. My current research interests are in computational design, human-agent interaction (e.g., Human-Robot Interaction, chatbot / bot design), and communication on social media (e.g., online mental health community).
