Dean’s Graduate Award

Award ceremony

I am honored to have received the Dean’s Graduate Research Excellence Award for 2023 from the School of Computing at the National University of Singapore (NUS).

The prestigious award is given to senior PhD students who have made significant research achievements during their PhD study. Recipients of this award must produce strong evidence of sustained research achievement during their course of study. Deserving recipients will receive this award once throughout their candidature.


Attaining this award would not have been feasible without numerous individuals’ unwavering support and contributions. I extend my deepest gratitude to my advisor, Assoc. Prof. Shengdong Zhao, for his invaluable guidance and mentorship. Additionally, I would like to thank the dedicated members of our NUS-HCI lab, our diligent reviewers, and the enthusiastic volunteer participants who played a pivotal role in our studies. My colleagues, friends, and family also deserve a special mention for their endless encouragement and support.

This achievement reflects not only my efforts but also the collaborative spirit and commitment to excellence that characterize our academic community.
