Hi, I'm a Research Scientist at Google in the People + AI Research (PAIR) team. Previously, I was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Oregon State University, where I led the Data Interaction and Visualization (DIV) Lab.

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.
