I am very happy to announce that “Korero: Facilitating Complex Referencing of Visual Materials in Asynchronous Discussion Interface” has been conditionally accepted to CSCW 2018!

In this paper, we develop a novel asynchronous discussion interface that allows users to make and comprehend references to multiple visual materials specifically in a much effective and efficient manner compared to conventional UIs.

More information on this work will be revealed on my personal site in the months to come. Stay tuned!

I wrote an article about Jobs-to-be-done Theory and User Experience

I wrote an article on Medium recently on the implications of Jobs-to-be-done Theory on user experience from the organizational and methodological perspectives. This article is inspired by Clayton Christiansen’s new book Competing Against Luck, and I recommend everyone who is interested in innovation to get a copy. You can find my piece here. Hope you’ll enjoy it!

Presented BeyondStereo and ColorBless to the President of NUS!


I am very happy to present my work on ColorBless as well as my lab’s work on BeyondStereo to the president and provost of the National University of Singapore (NUS). ColorBless is the world’s first colorblind technique that uses 3D glasses. It not only allows colorblind people to distinguish confusing colors much faster than any existing techniques, but also does not alter the color seen by people with normal color vision. For more details, please refer to the paper and the lab’s webpage.

Life in Hapticolor

Wonder where we got the name Hapticolor from? This video reveals the origin of the project title. Hapticolor is a haptic colour-blind aid that helps colour-blind people to tell color distances, and more. It will be presented in the CHI 2016 conference on May 11th, 1030am, at the San Jose Convention Center. Check us out.

The Positioning Glass project is accepted as a full paper in the ACM Chinese CHI Conference for 2016! In this paper, we investigate the effect of display positions of a monocular optical see-through head-mounted display, such as the Google Glass, on the performance of primary and secondary task in a mobile use-case scenario. We found that the middle-right position (in relation to our field of view) strikes the best balance between performance and usability.
