Haimo obtained his PhD in computer science from the NUS-HCI lab, National University of Singapore. His research interest is in human-computer interactions, and specifically stereoscopic 3D displays, 3D interactions, and haptics. In the past, Haimo has hacked existing technologies to do things they are not designed for, such as creating novel visual experiences on stereoscopic 3D displays, and enabling gestures on an un-instrumented physical keyboard. While this might become a recurring motif in his research adventure, Haimo is focused on bridging the gap between complex technologies and the needs of the users.
Haimo grew up in Nanjing, China. He went to National University of Singapore and obtained a bachelor's degree in computer engineering in 2009. In his spare time, he enjoys ice-skating and occasionally pretends to be a percussionist by making noises with his doumbek.
