Hello, I'm Lei, an Assistant Professor at Durham University. I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Warwick and an MSc in Digital Art and Design from Zhejiang University. Before joining Durham Computer Science, I was a Research Fellow at the University of Warwick, and then a Lecturer at the University of Liverpool.
My research lies at the intersection of Human-Centred Computing (HCC) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). I investigate both theoretical aspects of Human-AI collaboration and its practical applications in real-world settings. I aim at enabling computers to reproduce and complement human abilities, work with human, and facilitate human-human collaboration. I am particularly interested in how humans perceive, interact, collaborate and co-create with AI, especially in the fields of education and social innovation.
