Assistant Professor

I am an assistant professor in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech. Before joining Georgia Tech, I spent two wonderful years at Virginia Tech as a faculty member. Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Visual Computing Group at Harvard University, and received my Ph.D. from Human-Centred Computing Department, Monash University, Australia.

My research encompasses a wide range of topics within the fields of Visualization (VIS), VR/AR, and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). I actively contribute to these communities and regularly publish my work in leading venues such as IEEE VIS, ACM CHI, IEEE TVCG, EuroVis, and IEEE VR. I am honored to have received three best paper honorable mention awards, notably from IEEE VIS in 2016 and 2022, as well as ACM CHI in 2021. I also serve as a program committee member for several prestigious conferences in my fields, including IEEE VIS 2022/23/24, ACM CHI 2023/24, and IEEE VR 2022/23/24.
