Minsuk Kahng

Hi, I'm an Assistant Professor of Computer Science in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University.

The goal of my research is to make AI more interpretable and accessible, or broadly human-centered. Specifically, my research focuses on building novel interactive, visual analytics tools for people to easily explore, interpret, and interact with machine learning (ML) and large datasets. To do this, my work combines data-driven scalable techniques and human-centered interactive approaches, by utilizing methods from multiple areas, including data visualization, interpretable ML, human-computer interaction (HCI), and databases.

I received a PhD in computer science at Georgia Tech, advised by Polo Chau. I was fortunate to work with amazing people at Google Brain and Facebook Research, resulting in deployed systems (e.g., by Facebook on deep learning visualization) and open-sourced tools (e.g., with Google Brain on deep learning education). I was supported by a Google PhD Fellowship and an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I completed my master's and bachelor's degrees at Seoul National University in South Korea.

I'm looking for current OSU grad and undergrad students interested in explainable AI, data visualization, or human-AI interaction. Please email me with your CV.
