HUANG Zeyu's Website

  • Hi there!

    My name is Huang Zeyu ((huáng)()()). In Chinese, surnames come first. So you can call me Zeyu. I am currently a PhD candidate in CSE at the HCI Lab of HKUST, supervised by Prof. MA, Xiaojuan. I also do musical acoustic research following Prof. HORNER, Andrew. Prior to that, I also earned my Bachelor’s Degree in CS and MATH at HKUST.

    I am an ENFJ that not always believe in MBTI. I love music and playing drums. I brew coffees and cook. I check out exhibitions, shops, restaurants, streets, and the unexpected. I drift off and wake, learn and forget.

    Fun Facts

    About My Name

    My surname, Huang (黄; 黃 in Traditional Chinese), is one of the most common surnames in China. Apart from being a surname, it also literally means yellow — now you know where my website domain comes. My given name, Zeyu (泽宇; 澤宇 in Traditional Chinese), is also a quite popular one. That’s also why any domain name as a combination of huang and zeyu is already taken. originally means the place where water gathers (especially, pools, swamps, and magnificently large lakes). Since water is such a pure and glistening thing and a necessity for life, it also gains another meaning of to bestow favor (to something). means the universe. Therefore, together, 泽宇 means to bestow favor and show kindness to the entirety of the world.

    It is beautiful, isn’t it?

    About My HKUST Account Name

    If you ever know Mandarin Pinyin or understand Mandarin, you must have been stunned by my one-in-a-million HKUST account name. “zhuangbi” is the Mandarin Pinyin for “装逼” — a slang meaning to flaunt, to show off. But actually, it is intended to be “z” (for my given name “Zeyu”), “huang” (my surname), and a two-letter order code for all “zhuang"s since the first day of HKUST. Starting from “aa”, “ab”, and so on, I happen to get “bi”. Not many of us HKUST students have to luck to be known by a catchy account name instead of the real name. And for the past four years of my undergraduate life, people have been (and beening loving) calling me by my account name.

    My Videogame Collection

    I am a game player, but not the most typical ones. I love the experience of constant encounter with new stuff. Therefore, I seldom play online games (too competitive) and AAA games (too complicated), but I play a lot of indie puzzle and narrative games.

    Story-oriented games like What Remains of Edith Finch and The Stanley Parable are something I’d definitely recommend. For puzzle games, I want them to either come with delicate furnishings, like Gorogoa, Framed, The Witness, or be wrapped in adventures, like Machinarium (point-and-click), Fez and Portal (platform), or something new and eccentric like Return of the Obra Dinn and Superliminal.

    Beyond the two main category, I am very similar to Videogamedunkey as a die-hard fan of Mario games, and I hate RPG and turn-based combat. As Videogamedunkey said, that (counter-)preference especially stands out when I say I do like Undertale, Legend of Zelda, and Paper Mario.
