Personal profile

Yushan was born and raised in Xi'an. After completing my basic education and undergraduate studies there, Yushan moved to Norway for a 12-year period, during which he studied, worked, and lived. Since 2022, Yushan has been a part of XJTLU, where he is actively involved in research at the intersection of human-centric computing and software engineering. Prior to XJTLU, he worked at University of Oslo, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and Parametric Technology Corporation. Yushan's research focuses on deeply integrating human, machine/robot to enhance collective intelligence. Yushan is a Senior Member of IEEE, ACM and CCF. Yushan welcomes highly self-motivated undergraduate students to join his research team, as well as ambitious master's students who aspire to pursue a Ph.D. degree.
