My research interest is mainly related to but not limited to games, encompassing the application of machine learning and AI in gaming, the development of innovative algorithms to enhance various facets of game entertainment, and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) within gaming contexts. My current research is related to the investigation of randomness in games, and the development of Pseudorandom algorithms in games. I am open to other research ideas related to games, machine learning/AI, or subjects related to computer science. Scholarship opportunity for graduate students with outstanding performance is available, please feel free to contact me for further discussions.
