Minghao Cai

Hi there! I am currently a PhD candidate at University of Alberta. My research interests fall into Human-computer Interaction, Affect, and Learning Analytics. Recent research involves applying sensory and psychometric approaches to support modelling of student affect and cognitive states. Such a model can further inform the adaptive designs that improve learning performance and enhance the learning experience. In my Master's thesis project, I worked on remote communication with mixed reality and gesture interactions to provide a co-located feeling.
