Who?

I am a Software Engineer at Google Canada. I build full-stack systems to make emails dynamic and interactive and help people better connect in large organizations. In my 20% time, I invent and evaluate interaction techniques that bring computers with more expressivity, efficiency, and reliability. Prior to my current position, I studied Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at University of Waterloo with Daniel Vogel.

Research


Using Bayes' Theorem for Command Input (CHI 2020)

Suwen Zhu, Yoonsang Kim, Jingjie Zheng, Jennifer Yi Luo, Ryan Qin, Liuping Wang, Xiangmin Fan, Feng Tian, Xiaojun Bi

We formalized Bayes' theorem as a generic guiding principle for deciding targets in command input, developed three models for estimating prior and likelihood probabilities, and carried out experiments to demonstrate the effectiveness of this formalization.


i'sFree: Eyes-Free Gesture Typing (CHI 2019)

Suwen Zhu, Jingjie Zheng, Shumin Zhai, Xiaojun Bi

We proposed i'sFree, an interaction technique that enables eyes-free gesture typing on a distant display from a touch-enabled remote control.


HotStrokes: Word-Gesture Shortcuts on a Trackpad (CHI 2019)

Wenzhe Cui, Jingjie Zheng, Blaine Lewis, Daniel Vogel, Xiaojun Bi

We proposed HotStrokes to enable entering shortcut commands by holding a modifier key, then gesture typing a command name on a laptop trackpad as if on an imaginary virtual keyboard.


FingerArc & FingerChord (UIST 2018)

Jingjie Zheng, Blaine Lewis, Jeff Avery, Daniel Vogel

We conducted interviews with expert computer users, identified key issues that hinder the wide use of keyboard shortcuts, and proposed FingerArc and FingerChord to support novice to expert transitions.


M3 Gesture Menu (CHI 2018)

Jingjie Zheng, Xiaojun Bi, Kun Li, Yang Li, Shumin Zhai

We addressed the adoption challenges of marking menus in practice by designing, implementing, and evaluating M3 Gesture Menu (M3), a re-imagination of marking menus targeted at mobile interfaces.


Finger-Aware Shortcuts (CHI 2016)

Jingjie Zheng, Daniel Vogel

We leveraged computer vision and machine learning techniques to identify the hand, finger, and posture on a laptop keyboard when a key is being pressed to enable more shortcut commands.


Knee Image Registration (SIViP)

Jingjie Zheng, Zhenyan Ji, Kuangdi Yu, Qin An, Zhiming Guo, Zuyi Wu

We proposed a feature-based solution to align the human knee images in the modalities of Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance (MR) to construct 3D models for disease diagnosis and stress analysis.
