Welcome to my webpage!

I am a first year PhD student at UCLA Human-Centered Computing and Intelligent Sensing Lab (HiLab), advised by Prof. Yang Zhang. I received my BEng degree in Electrical Engineering and Automation from Tongji University, China.

My current research focuses on building intelligent sensing systems by the smart use of special properties of materials, physical effects, mechanical structures, etc.

CubeSense: Wireless, Battery-Free Interactivity through Low-Cost Corner Reflector Mechanisms (CHI 2021 LBW)

Xiaoying Yang, Yang Zhang

CubeSense is a wireless, battery-free and low-cost sensing system based on corner reflector mechanisms. We designed several controllers by encoding user interactivity (e.g. button press, switch toggle, slider position, knob rotation) into Radar Cross Section (RCS) of corner reflectors.
