Hi! I am Houjiang~

A PhD student studying HCI and Human-centered AI at the School of Information, UT Austin. Currently, I am advised by professor Matthew Lease and Min Kyung Lee to apply explainable NLP in human fact-checking.

Previously, I was a design researcher at the Center for Design, working with professor Miso Kim on Service Design and Paolo Ciuccarelli on Information Visualization. I was also a part-time lecturer teaching interaction design and ID tools in CAMD.

I have graduated with a degree in MFA of Experience Design at Northeastern. My master thesis focuses on gift reciprocity in human relationships: Enriching Gifts, Experience Design to Understand Human Relationships
