Short Bio

Zhiming Hu is a post-doctoral researcher in the Perceptual User Interfaces Group led by Prof. Andreas Bulling and the Computational Biophysics and Biorobotics Group led by Prof. Syn Schmitt, in the University of Stuttgart, Germany since August 2022. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Computer Software and Theory from Peking University, China in 2022, supervised by Prof. Guoping Wang. He received his Bachelor's degree in Optical Engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology, China in 2017. He has published more than 10 papers at top venues in VR/AR and HCI, including IEEE VR, ISMAR, TVCG, CHI, and UIST. His work has been nominated for TVCG best journal award at IEEE VR 2021 as well as for best doctoral student paper award at INTERACT 2023. He served as a reviewer for many top venues, including SIGGRAPH, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, CHI, UIST, IEEE VR, ISMAR, IMWUT, TMM, TVCG, and IJHCI.

Research Interests

My research interests include virtual reality, human-computer interaction, eye tracking, and human-centred artificial intelligence. The long-term research goal is to develop a human-centred intelligent interactive system that can accurately model human behaviours, e.g. human eye movements and human body movements, in activities of daily living.
