Hi, I am Lu Sun | 孙露

I am a third year PhD student in Cognitive Science Department and Design Lab at UC San Diego. Currently, I am working with Prof. Steven Dow and Prof. Kristen Vaccaro. My broad research area is Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and social computing. In my research, I develop tools and techniques to improve conference peer review process. I also use mixed methods (leaning more on quantitative method) to model user behaviors in complex cognitive tasks, such as scientific discovery.

Prior to entering my graduate program, I received my B.Eng. degree in Telecommunication Engineering from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunication (BUPT) and a Master degree from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Human Computer Interaction Institute (HCII), specializing in Learning Science. During my time at CMU, I was fortunate to work with Prof. Justine Cassell, Prof. Ken Koedinger, Prof. Robert E. Kraut and Dr. Diyi Yang. Out of my research, I play violin and tennis.
