Hello, my name is Qisheng Li. I am a 3rd year PhD student at Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, advised by Katharina Reinecke. Please visit our virtual lab at Lab in the Wild.

I am broadly interested in human-computer interaction, accessibility and social computing. I am currently doing research on developing methods for researchers to conduct controlled experiments at large scale, understanding how people with different cultural background and various abilities perceive and engage with technologies, and providing personalized adaptations for end users.

Before joining UW CSE, I received my triple bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics, Computer Science and Economics from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. For more details, please check out my CV.
