Weiquan is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Computing in NUS who examines the User Experience (UX) Design of technologically-empowered learning environments. He designs and utilizes experiential learning technology (such as simulations, Augmented and Virtual Reality) in the courses he teaches, and his education research interests include figuring out how all this technology tangibly and measurably affects human learning. He also advises government and industry in the fields of UX design, experiential learning, as well as and virtual and augmented reality. He holds a B.Comp. in Computing and a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from NUS.
