Yucheng Jin 金昱成

Dr. Yucheng Jin is a Research Assistant Professor affiliated with the HCI-RecSys Group led by Dr. Li Chen at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). Before joining HKBU, he was a senior UX researcher at Lenovo Research. He earned his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Leuven (KU Leuven). During his Ph.D. study, he was a member of the HCI Augment Group, and was under the supervision of Dr. Katrien Verbert and Dr. Nava Tintarev. He holds a master's degree in Informatics from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and a bachelor's degree in Information Management & Information System from Wuhan University. He has published more than 20 papers in the leading conferences and journals of Human-Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence (e.g., CHI, CSCW, IUI, RecSys, CIKM, UMUAI) and held more than 10 patents granted in China and the U.S. He regularly serves as the program committee member for ACM RecSys and ACM IUI conferences.

Research Interests
