I am an incoming Master’s Student in Computer Science at the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Dr. Joseph Jay Williams. During my undergraduate, I completed Computer Science Specialist and Statistics Major. I also did a Minor in Mathematics.
This summer, I will be working as a SUDS Scholar at the Data Sciences Institute, under the supervision of Professor Michael Liut.
My research interest is Human-Computer Interaction, I have been working on approaches that innovate the ways of computer science education.
My MSc studies
Stay tuned, I will be back to the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto as a MSc student this September!

Pan Chen’s Projects
Voice Reflection System
This reflection system renovated how students do their reflections on course concepts and knowledge and used NLP techniques to increase the efficiency and consistency of validation. This system was deployed at a 300-level databases course at the University of Toronto.
Statistical Consequences of Dueling Bandits
A paper at Workshop on Reinforcement Learning for Education, 14th International Conference on Educational Data Mining, Paris, France, 2021. This paper analyzes power, regret, the proportion of Condorcet winners for Double Thompson sampling and Uniform assignment with dueling bandits algorithm.
Worked as an external UI/UX researcher to build a web app for the RAD lab at UofT, to help participants manage mental health more efficiently.
Face-Control Snake Game
Applied a TensorFlow model called PoseNet to detect the player’s position in real-time, so that the player can move their face to control the snake.
General Customized Email Merger (GCEM)
GCEM is an online tool that makes mail merge easier. Users can also track the open of the email and any link inside the email body. This tool is compatible with Gmail, Outlook, or other email services with a correct SMTP configuration.
Get UofT Access
A Chrome extension that automatically redirects webpage to myaccess.utoronto.ca with one click. Save your time! It may take 5 seconds to 10 seconds to copy and paste myaccess.utoronto.ca in the address bar, but now it is just one click. This tool benefits 65+ researchers.
Your Today is a Web Application that is built with Express for the backend, ReactJS for the frontend, and MongoDB for the database.
