Picture of me!
Hey, I'm Yixin! I'm currently a sophomore at the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
I'm majoring in Computer Engineering, and will pursue a minor in either Business/Economics.


  • Programming
  • Learning new things
  • Jamming on the piano
  • Exercising
  • Chilling with friends

Immediate Goals

  • Participate more in extracurricular clubs
  • Learn more personal finance
  • Explore passive income opportunities
  • Invest in a standing desk
  • Attend Graduate school




Other than my academics, I also participate actively in research tailored towards the EECS field. I am most interested in research dealing with Robotics, Crowdsourcing, Artificial Intelligence, and Hybrid Intelligence.

During the school year of 2017-2018, I actively worked on research regarding Augmented Reality and Bluetooth technology. For the former, I researched into Augmented Reality's potential impact on the industrial world, as well as industrial design. I created an Augmented Reality, iOS application using Apple's ARKit, that would be used to expedite architectural analysis of optimal space usage. For the latter, I tested the Arduino's ability to enable Bluetooth technology in every day objects, such as ceiling lights.

For the academic year of 2018-2019, I will be joining the CROMA Lab.
