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.

My research focuses on building novel interactive data visualization tools for people to easily explore, interpret, and interact with AI or machine learning (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, visual analytics, interpretable ML, human-computer interaction (HCI), and databases.

I received a PhD in computer science at Georgia Tech. I was fortunate to work with amazing people at Google Brain and Facebook Research, resulting in deployed systems (e.g., deep learning visualization for Facebook) and open-sourced tools (e.g., GAN education with Google Brain). My research has been supported by NSF, DARPA, Google, and Facebook.

I'm looking for both graduate and undergraduate students interested in human-AI interaction, data visualization, explainable AI, interactive ML, etc. If you are a current OSU student, please email me with your CV and transcipt; a short summary of your interests or experience; and a brief explanation of why you want to work with me.
