Minsuk Kahng

Hi, I'm an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University, where I lead the Data Interaction and Visualization (DIV) Lab.

I'll be joining the Google People+AI Research (PAIR) team as a Research Scientist in October.

My research focuses on building novel visual analytics tools for people to interpret and interact with machine learning systems and large datasets. In doing this, I combine human-centered interactive approaches and data-driven scalable techniques, by using methods in data visualization, Explainable AI, human-computer interaction (HCI), and databases.

I earned my PhD in Computer Science from Georgia Tech with a Dissertation Award. My work led to deployed technologies (e.g., ActiVis for Facebook) and open-sourced tools (e.g., GAN Lab developed with Google). My research has been supported by NSF, DARPA, Google, and more.
