👋 Hi! I’m Haodi Zou (邹灏迪). I’m an incoming Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UC San Diego, advised by Prof. Deepak Kumar. My research interests lie in human-computer interaction, social computing, and online harm.

Before coming to UCSD, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at UC Berkeley. At Berkeley, I’ve been fortunate to engage in research on social computing and human-centered AI in Prof. Niloufar Salehi’s research group.

Besides academic research, I’ve also interned at Microsoft and Amazon as a software engineer.
