Research

My current research focuses on Human-Centered AI through interactive visualization. I got my B.S. from UW–Madison, where I worked on fluorescent cell image classification and drug discovery with Anthony Gitter. I also worked closely with Michael Gleicher and Yu Hen Hu.

Selected Undergraduate Projects

Iteractive 2D, 2.5D and 3D computational graphics with shaders and textures, created by using HTML canvas and webGL.
Sentiment analysis: predicting Yelp ratings based on text comments of Madison restaurants. This project won the in-class Kaggle competition.
Flexible and robust Mixed Integer Quadratic Programming model written in Julia to solve a real-life group assignment problem. It won the best project.

Fun

Convenient macOS command line tool for uploading screen-shots from the clipboard to Imgur. This app is featured on the official Imgur website.
MacOS GUI used to auto-annotate facial landmarks from a video. These landmarks can further be used to train GANs.
Interactive geographic visualization for studying where UW–Madison Chinese undergraduates are from.
