Jiahao Nick LI 李嘉昊

I am a final year Ph.D. candidate at UCLA HCI Research working with Prof. Xiang ‘Anthony’ Chen.

My research area focuses on human-AI interaction with a focus on designing studies to understand user needs and building AI-powered interactive systems for novel real-world tasks. I am particularly interested in AI-assisted tasks using personal egocentric data. This includes: (1) embodied AI assistance for pervasive AR, and (2) long-form egocentric video understanding.

During my Ph.D., I interned at Meta Reality Lab, Adobe Research and Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). I was also a visiting Ph.D. student at University of Tokyo working with Dr. Takeo Igarashi. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor of Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
