Minsuk Kahng

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 data visualization tools for people to easily explore, interpret, and interact with machine learning (ML) systems and many different types of 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 earned a PhD in computer science at Georgia Tech and received the College of Computing Dissertation Award. 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 students interested in human-AI interaction, data visualization, explainable AI, etc. If you are a current OSU student, please email me with your CV and transcipt; a short summary of your experience; and a brief explanation of why you want to work with me. I may not be able to respond to your email if we don't have available positions for you.
