Director Dr. MIN FAN （范敏）, Professor
Welcome to IDC Lab
- Dr. Fan Min completed her PhD and postdoctoral work at the School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) at Simon Fraser University in Canada. She has been nominated for the Beijing Novel Program and the Academic Youth Scholar program at CUC in 2011. Her research interests revolve around child-centric and tangible interaction design, which she explores through theoretical investigations and the development of child-specific tangible applications. Her work contributes to the fields of interaction design for children, as well as the tangible, embedded, and embodied interaction communities. Dr. Fan Min has published over 30 papers in top HCI journals and conferences, and she has served as an Associate Chair in ACM CHI (22-24) and IDC’22. Additionally, she has organized two design workshops at IDC’23 and ChineseCHI’22 conferences. In recognition of her research, one of her papers received an Honorable Mention Award at CHI’17, placing it among the top 5% of the best papers presented.
- Her current research projects focus on two main areas: (1) exploring the design space AI-based interactive learning systems for children with special educational needs, specifically autism and learning difficulties; and (2) designing and evaluating immersive VR/AR/XR environments for learning and well-being.
WHAT WE DO
AI Creativity & AI Empowerment for (At-Risk) Children
We investigate in what ways AI may empower their development in cognition, creativity, or social skills.
Tangible and AR User Interface Design
We focus on the design and implementation of tangible and AR user interfaces to support collaboration or learning.
Design and Evaluation of Immersive Learning Environments
We research on the design of evaluation of VR/AR/XR environments for learning and well-being.
