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 data visualization 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. 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, Google, and Facebook.

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