Designer or Programmer ? Yep & Nah !
Just me, Sha LI
Hi, my name is Sha LI (李莎), you can call me Lisa :) Inspired by the observation of everyday life, I try to find better solutions to problems which need to be considered from both artistic and informatics perspectives.
I am currently a research student at the University of York, EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent Games and Game Intelligence (IGGI). I am also sponsored by BT Technology's Future Content Research (iCase). I am a graduate of the University of Edinburgh where I received an MSc in Advanced Design Informatics, with Distinction. My earlier degree is B.Eng in Digital Media Arts (Xiamen University, Software School). I did a summer internship developing VR games with the Two Big Ears, back in 2014.
I have been educated in software engineering and digital media for over 6 years. My first degree, Digital Media Engineering, provides a special basis for my study, because it is a cross-disciplinary major that not only requires students to master the knowledge of computer science but to also be artistically accomplished. My master major, Advanced Design Informatics, gave me a stage to play with my ideas freely, and has trained me in how to carry out research activities as well.
I also rely on my abilities to solve problems and to learn quickly. During the internship last summer, I was able to make a product by exploring a new SDK and picking up a new programming language within a short time. I am not just enthusiastic about doing research but also engaged in making products.
Besides academics, I have strong interpersonal and communication skills and have been involved in various social events, which makes me capable of performing well in networking activities like workshops. I am an optimistic, cheerful person who loves living life deeply. My friends like to describe me as 'a CRAZY girl' - study crazy, work crazy, and play crazy, for the reason that I am always passionate.
Welcome to my personal website, wish you have a good time here! Cheers :D ❤
