I am a third year PhD candidate in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), co-advised by Prof. Karrie Karahalios and Prof. Hari Sundaram. My current research focuses on collective decision making mechanism design and decision making through data visualizations. During my Masters at UIUC, I worked with Prof. Aditya Parameswaran and Prof. Karrie Karahalios on the Dataspread Project during my Masters.
My borad research interest asks – “How can people use computational tools to make better decision?” In general, this coveres topics in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). More specifically, this covers topics like collective decision making (i.e., voting and survey design), data visualization, and human-AI interaction (i.e, smart home).
I received my B.Sc degree from The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. I was a research student in The Husky Team supervised by Prof. James Cheng. I worked on distributed machine learning algorithms in nearest-neighbor search during my undergraduate studies. My acedemic advisor was Prof. John C.S. Lui.
I am a full-stack web developer and a technology educator when not doing research. In the past, I interned at two great compaines: Salesforce and KKBOX.
