[Curriculum Vitae] Hey! I am Mia (Mi Feng), a PhD student at CS Department, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), advised by Prof. Lane Harrison. I am interested in developing and evaluating perceptual- and cognitive- friendly interaction techniques to support users' 2D or 3D exploration. My PhD study focuses on supporting user exploring interactive data visualizations on the web. During my Master's studies, I built VR systems with multi-sensory feedback and studied their effect on users' spatial orientation (advised by Prof. Robert Lindeman). ​I got my Bachelor's degree in Software Engineering (Media Art and Science) at Tongji University, Shanghai, China. Building things is exciting, but we are not to build them blindly. We can make the emerging technologies more accessible through a better understanding of ourselves.
