User Bio

Hi, I am Jifei. I am a research assistant at MIT Media Lab. This is my portfolio site. (I'm still updating the most current research projects)

My research works focus on the tunable physical materiality in HCI. As a designer, I am interested in new interaction modes that emerge from programmable material; As a researcher, I work on designing and fabricating smart materials that are active, adaptive and narrative.

“Antidisciplinary” is a way of thinking as well as an attitude of living. I’m interested in Architecture, Robotics, Biology, Anthropology, Design, etc.
