Media Requests Welcome
Accepting New Graduate Students


I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Information Technology at York University. Before this I was a postdoc at Stanford University, where I worked with Maneesh Agrawala. My research focuses on combining information visualization and human-computer interaction with natural language processing to address the challenges of the information overload problem. In particular, I design and develop both text analysis and interactive visualization techniques to explore a large amount of data.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of British Columbia, under the supervision of Giuseppe Carenini. Prior to that, I completed my M.Sc. degree at Memorial University of Newfoundland under the supervision of Orland Hoeber and Minglun Gong. I have conducted research on visual analytics at Tableau Software and the Qatar Computing Research Institute. My work has appeared in top journals and conferences including IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems, ACM CHI, ACM IUI, ACM UIST, EuroVis, and ACL.
