I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science, at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. My research seeks to create effective human-in-the-loop methods to support sensemaking of big data. My work falls in the areas of visual analytics, information visualization, human-computer interaction (HCI) and human-centered machine learning, with applied domains in intelligence analysis, business intelligence and cyber security.
I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Virginia Tech in 2016. I got my M.Ed. in Educational Technology from Peking University (2011), and my B.S. (with honour) in Computer Science (2009) from China Agricultural University.
