About me

Ningzhi Tang (唐宁直) is a 1st year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, advised by Prof. Toby Jia-Jun Li in SaNDwich Lab. Before joining Notre Dame, he received his B.Eng. degree in the same department at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), conducting research on recommender systems under the guidance of Prof. Yuhui Shi.

My research interests lie at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Currently, I am working on a project that aims to understand programmer behaviors when debugging AI-generated code using a mixture of eye tracking and IDE tracking methods.

📢 I am looking for a summer internship in HCI research for 2024. Feel free to contact me if you know of any suitable openings!
