Ward Melville High School student Ryan Qin has become a published author based on his research on mobile keyboards and text entry. 

This research – “MobileHCI 2018 Workshop on Socio-Technical Aspects of Text Entry” – was first published this fall as part of the MobileHCI 2018 20th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services. Ryan’s work was one of the seven papers (out of 28 papers) that received this honor. Additionally, his long paper was showcased during the ACM ISS 2018 Interactive Surfaces and Spaces conference held in Tokyo.

Ryan worked on this project under the direction of Xiaojun Bi, assistant professor of computer science at Stony Brook University and director of the computer science department’s Human-Computer Interaction Lab. He has been interning with the professor since last school year.
