I adopt a human-centered perspective design sustainable sensing and interaction systems to bridge the physical and digital world. I develop power and information interconnection techniques to offload energy and computing intensive tasks from resource-constrained things to resource-abundant computers. My previous work falls into three categories, each corresponds to one aspect of the Thing-computer interconnection computing paradigm:

I invent passive sensors that can be deployed in a DIY manner to detect object status and human behaviors.
I design modularized smart rings and use a thermal imaging smart ring to detect gesture and tag inputs.
