Xiang Li

Student Fellow


Xiang Li is a Ph.D. student in Intelligent Interactive Systems at the Engineering Design Centre, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Professor Per Ola Kristensson. He was a Visiting Ph.D. scholar at the Center for Metaverse and Computational Creativity, HKUST (Guangzhou) in 2022, working with Professor Pan Hui. He received his dual B.Sc. (Honors) from Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University in China and the University of Liverpool in the UK. He finished his Bachelor Honors Dissertation at the X-CHI Lab, advised by Professor Hai-Ning Liang, and previously worked with Dr. Wenge Xu. Besides, he has worked with Professor Jan Gugenheimer and Professor David Lindlbauer at the Institute Polytechnique de Paris (Télécom Paris) and Carnegie Mellon University, and Professor Florian ‘Floyd’ Mueller at the Exertion Games Lab, Monash University.

His research interest lies in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), at the intersection of Mixed Reality, Bodily Interfaces, Sensing Technologies, and Computational Interaction. He aims to focus his Ph.D. studies on understanding the relationship between human bodies and the digital environment, and concurrently creating new interactive systems that augment a wide range of perceptions via computational interaction methods, which he believes are crucial for the successful Integration or even the Fusion of Human-Computer Interaction.

Whilst at Leverhulme CFI, he will be part of the Designing for Wellbeing research programme.
