Jackie Liu

Masters' Student
Computer Science

I am a Computer Science MSc. student at the University of British Columbia, with a focus in Human-Computer Interaction. I completed my BSc. in Computer Science from the University of Toronto in 2021, where I worked as a research assistant on a HCI project in collaboration with the Department of Chemical Engineering. Through internships and full time positions I have ~3 years of experience working as a software developer, mainly focused on front-end development.

Research Interests

I am primarily interested in how we can take a human-centered approach to improve the effectiveness of technologies from a usability perspective. More specifically I would like to explore ways we can make collaboration tools and processes more personalized and user-friendly through identifying the challenges that users have with current designs, and creating solutions that tackle those challenges. I also have an interest in AR/VR technologies, and how we can use such tools to increase productivity for collaborative work.
