Zhuohao (Jerry) Zhang at CHI 2019 standing in front of a poster, wearing a black sweater.

My name is Zhuohao (Jerry) Zhang (Chinese: 张倬豪). I am currently a Ph.D. student at University of Washington, focusing on HCI and Accessibility. I am fortunate to work with Prof. Jacob Wobbrock at ACE Lab. I obtained my Master of Science degree in CS from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where I worked with Prof. Yang Wang at SALT Lab. I also worked closely with Prof. Sauvik Das at Georgia Tech, Prof. Shiri Azenkot at Cornell Tech, and Prof. Yingcai Wu at Zhejiang University, where I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in CS.

I am interested in integrating human intellect to solve real-world accessibility problems when AI is not a perfect solution. The specific user groups I have been targeting on are people with visual impairments and people with no technical backgrounds but need to engage in novel techniques. Recently, I am working on making creative workspaces accessible for blind people.
