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 visual analytics tools for humans to easily explore, 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 a PhD in computer science from Georgia Tech with a Dissertation Award. My work led to deployed technologies by Facebook (e.g., ActiVis) and an open-sourced tool developed with Google (e.g., GAN Lab). My research has been supported by NSF, DARPA, Google, and many.
