Zhuying Li

PhD Candidate in Human-computer Interaction


I’m Zhuying Li, a PhD candidate at Exertion Games Lab, Monash University, Australia. I am interested in the intersection of technology, human and play. Currently, I am passionate about how augmented-human technology could change people's daily experiences in the context of play. My PhD research is about designing playful experiences with ingestible sensors.

Before starting my PhD, I earned a Bachelor of Engineering in Information Engineering (Honor) at Southeast University, China. Then I worked in Netease as a game designer, involving in the system design and plot design of a Multi-player Online RPG Game.
