I'm a graduate student and currently work as a research assistant at the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute at the University of Utah.
- PhD in Computer Science: School of Computing, University of Utah, UT (August 2018 - Present)
- M.S. in Statistics: Department of Statistics, University of Wisconsin-Madison, WI (September 2015 - May 2017)
- B.S. in Statistics: School of Statistics, Renmin University of China, China (September 2012 - June 2016)
My research focuses on developing visual analytics systems for large and complex data, mainly through topological techniques. Topological techniques extract information from high-dimensional and noisy data, and there is a natural connection between topological data analysis and data visualization. There are two parts to my current research efforts:
- Building visualization systems to help topologists develop better theories, and advances in theoretical study can then provide more efficient techniques for data analysis.
- Combining topological techniques with machine learning and visualization for model explanation and interpretation.
