Yunxiang Zhang

Welcome! I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student at NYU, advised by Prof. Qi Sun in the Immersive Computing Lab. My research revolves around virtual/augmented/mixed reality, human-computer interaction, and generative AI, with a focus on multimodal interface design and AI-assisted content creation for immersive applications. More broadly, I enjoy combining insights from physical, perceptual, and cognitive sciences with machine learning tools to solve challenging real-world problems.

Prior to NYU, I obtained my MPhil in the Multimedia Laboratory at CUHK under the supervision of Prof. Dahua Lin. Before that, I did my undergraduate studies at SJTU and École Polytechnique.

During my graduate studies, I have had the fortune to work with and learn from great minds at Intel Graphics Research and Vector Institute through internships.

Outside of work, I love hiking, traveling, and photography!
