Chenfeng (Jesse) Gao*, Wanli (Michael) Qian*, ... Ken Nakagaki
Jesse is a designer who has an interest in tangible interfaces, mixed reality, and multimodal interaction. Currently, he is pursuing his studies in Computer Science as a pre-doctoral student at the University of Chicago. Under the guidance of Dr. Ken Nakagaki, Jesse is exploring the field of tangible and actuated interactions at AxLab.
Before joining AxLab, Jesse got his Master's in Design from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Institue of Design(ID) and a B.S. in Applied Mathematics from Renmin University of China. At ID, Dr. Anijo Mathew and Prof. Zach Pino mentored him, enhancing his skills in human-centered design.
His research primarily explores enhancing the interaction between physical objects and digital information, aiming to create a smooth transition between the virtual and real worlds.
