Ph.D. Student: Industrial and Operations Engineering
Area of Interest: Yanxun’s research is in cognitive ergonomics and focuses on the computational model of human-machine interaction system simulation using large data analysis method. He is currently implementing neural network and reinforcement learning in building an user interface ecosystem specially on In-Vehicle Infotainment systems. The goal is to build a self contained user interface design and evaluation feedback model to make quantifiable predictions and evaluations of user interfaces. Also, he is interested in studying human attention and behavior patterns with big data analysis and its related algorithm development.
