I do research in human-computer interaction
and human-AI interaction

My research lies at the intersection of human-computer interaction and machine learning. My work aims at improving the explainability and fairness of machine learning algorithms. I am co-advised by Professors Haiyi Zhu and Steven Wu.

In my recent work, I

I am currently on the job market in 2021. I am excited about research in human-AI interaction and would love to chat! My resume is available here
