Minsuk Kahng

I'll be joining Oregon State University as an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in December!

I'm looking for PhD students interested in human-centered AI, data visualization, or more. Email me for questions or directly submit an application by December 15.

The goal of my research is to make AI more accessible and interpretable, or broadly human-centered. Specifically, my research focuses on building novel interactive, visual analytics tools for people to easily explore, interpret, and interact with ML systems 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 machine learning, databases, and HCI.

I received a PhD in computer science at Georgia Tech, advised by Polo Chau. During my PhD studies, I was fortunate to work with amazing people at Google Brain and Facebook Research, resulting in publications, deployed systems by Facebook (e.g., on visualization of deep learning models), and open-sourced tools developed with Google Brain (e.g., on deep learning education).

I have been supported by a Google PhD Fellowship and an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Prior to Georgia Tech, I completed both my master's and bachelor's degrees at Seoul National University in South Korea.
