Profile – Yunzhan Zhou

Yunzhan Zhou

PhD Student in the Department of Computer Science

He has built a 3D eye-tracking dataset collected when users were navigating through a VR mu-seum. Based on the dataset, He proposed several methods for predicting subsequent behaviour attention. He is now working on improving the prediction methods and understanding the visual behaviour mechanism in VR.

The dataset can be found here:
