I am currently a third-year Ph.D. student in computer science. My research is to bring the interpretability of machine learning and graph mining models for people by designing and developing interactive visual analytics tools to help them understand and diagnose potential societal problems of data-driven systems.

At Arizona State University I work with Ross Maciejewski as a member of the VADER lab. My research is supported by the National Science Foundation Program on Fairness in AI in collaboration with Amazon.
