Biao Xie

B.S. student in Computer Science of UMass Boston.
McNair Fellow.

I started my B.S. program of Computer Science at UMass Boston since Fall 2016. Currently, I am working at the Design Computing and eXtended Reality (DCXR) group with my advisor Prof. Craig Yu, co-advised by Prof. Marc Pomplum. I am interested to see the future of virtual reality, and VR game development.

I will be a Ph.D. student at George Mason University starting in Fall 2020.

Research Interests: Virtual Reality, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Game Design
