Zijie Jay Wang

Hi, I'm Jay. I'm a Machine Learning Ph.D. candidate in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech advised by Polo Chau.

My research focuses on making AI more accessible, interpretable, and accountable, by designing and developing novel interactive interfaces for people to easily and enjoyably interact with machine learning systems at scale.

I received my B.S. from UW–Madison, where I worked closely with Anthony Gitter, Michael Gleicher, and Yu Hen Hu.
