Hello. Hola. 你好。侬好。

I consider myself as a creative technologist, but with a critical edge. I think and work at the intersection of media/technology studies, human-centered computation, and media arts.

I am currently finishing my Master's program in Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU Steinhardt. My research will focus on unexpected uses and abuses of digital media technologies in different social, political, and cultural contexts. Besides, my research interests also include urban studies and Latin American studies.

I graduated from New York University Shanghai in 2017, double-majoring in Interactive Media Arts and Global China Studies. My capstone project is Cardboard Shikumen, where I used web-based virtual reality to document an old Shikumen neighbourhood in downtown Shanghai before its demolition and redevelopment.

Based mainly in Shanghai and New York, sometimes Buenos Aires.

My CV opens in a new tab.


I can be reached at lewei.huang@nyu.edu. Alternatively, add me on WeChat/Weixin with the username RLHINT.

Have a nice day.
