About

Haikun (Quincy) Huang

Ph.D. student in Computer Science of UMass Boston.
McNair Mentor.

I started my Ph.D. program of Computer Science at UMass Boston since 2016. I am currently working at the GV Lab with my advisor Prof. Craig Yu.
I received my Bachelor degree in Computer Science from UMass Boston, Bachelor degree in E-Comms from SCUT and Bachelor degree in Game Design from GZU.
I had worked in a game company for few years and I am also a columnist for Manew and Taikr (both are the game development community in China, my ref id is 啦啦酱). 

I am the Ph.D. mentor of Exercise Intensity-driven Level Design and the paper Featured on IEEE Xplore Innovation Spotlight.

I am the Ph.D. mentor of Pose-Guided Level Design and won the Honourable Mention Award from CHI 2019.

Research Interests: Computational Design, Graphics, Vision, VR/AR/MR, Cognitive Science.
