Leijie Wang (王雷捷)
Incoming PhD Student, University of Washington
leijiew@uw.edu

I am an undergraduate student at Tsinghua University and major in Computer Science. I worked as a research assistant at Social AI Group at Carnegie Mellon University, where I was co-advised by Professors Haiyi Zhu and Steven Wu. I was also fortunate to be part of CMU DIG lab and advised by Professor Adam Perer. From Fall 2022, I will be joining Social Futures Lab as a PhD student and supervised by Amy X. Zhang.

My current research interests are Social Computing, Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency, and, more broadly, Human-AI Interaction. Specifically, I am passionate to (1) investigate the interaction between algorithms and humans and (2) design human-centered systems that reflect the human values and needs of real-world stakeholders.
