Hey! I am Mi Feng (Mia), a PhD candidate at Computer Science Dept., Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), advised by Prof. Lane Harrison. I am interested in data visualization, human-computer interaction and virtual reality. My PhD research centers around quantifying and modeling people's interactions with visualizations on the web. My master study included building VR systems with multi-sensory feedback and studying 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. In 2016-2018, I interned at Twitter, PNNL, and Bosch, working on DataVis and AR.
Aside from research, I'm into coding () and art for fun .
