PhD student, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT)

I am a third-year PhD student in the Department of Informatics, with a background of Mathematics. My research interest lies in the intersection of human-centered AI and information visualization. Currently, I am working on visual analytic for ranking interpretation on high-stake decision-making; adapting Learning-to-rank for fairness, accountability, and transparency; scientific communication subjectivity and sentiment analysis.
