My name is Huang Zeyu (黄 泽宇). 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. Prior to that, I also earned my Bachelor’s Degree in CS and MATH at HKUST.
I am an ENFJ that never believes in MBTI (which is probably why I’m N). 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.

Here lists some of the false alarms that make Grammarly annoyed and annoying.

(This article is in Chinese) 在傍晚的飞机起飞前，我们干脆一大早就去日内瓦机场，然后在谷歌地图上随手点一个附近的法国小镇转转，只是彼时压根不知道城市名中的伏尔泰指的就是那位哲学家和文学家，而这座城市就是他安度晚年的地方。

(This article is in Chinese) 虽然地处酷寒的雪山之中，但是四月份的苏黎世可不缺日照和温度。除此之外，之前习以为常的海鸥，那些贱兮兮喜欢吆喝又乐此不疲地给音乐配音、跟路人斗鸡眼、在河堤学鸭子走路的海鸥，也肉眼可见的变少了，鸽子们趁虚而入抢占了苏黎世的大部分地盘。

(This article is in Chinese) 奥斯陆给人的感觉是一种弛放的状态，没有太多让人眼花缭乱的景象，但是溪水也是动的，飞鸟也是动的，沿街店铺粉饰的丰富色彩也是仿佛要跳脱墙壁一般动态的，这里的一切共同构成了这座城市轻盈松弛的脉搏。
2023 Europe Travel Journal 5: Stockholm
(This article is in Chinese) 斯德哥尔摩的行程无疑是我们整趟路途中浓墨重彩的一笔，因为我们在完全没有计划的前提下，碰巧遇上了国王的生日和一个传统节日。斯德哥尔摩是一个多面的城市，市中心现代化的一面、老城区古朴典雅的一面、还有城中星罗棋布的静谧一面，在我们的眼前徐徐展开。
