About Me

Yi-Chieh Lee is an HCI researcher in NTT, and he earned his Ph.D. in 2021 from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). His research interests include human-computer interaction (HCI), CSCW, social computing, conversational user interfaces, and human-centered AI. He recently focused on designing AI conversational agents to promote mental well-being and behavior change. He is passionate about bridging social impact and AI technologies; thus, he dedicates himself to creating new social interventions to facilitate human-AI interaction and generating recommendations for future technology design. 

Before joining the UIUC, Lee received his B.S. degree in computer science from National Tsing Hua University in 2011 and his M.S. degree in multimedia engineering from National Chiao-Tung University in 2014. In his prior work, Lee also applied physiological data, such as Electroencephalography (EEG) and Electromyography (EMG), in usability testing and human-computer interaction research.
