ABOUT

I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science, University of British Columbia (UBC), working with Dr. Tamara Munzner in the InfoVis group. Prior to UBC, I received my Bachelor's degree from the Department of Computer Science, EECS, Peking University (PKU). I worked as a research assistant in the Visualization and Visual Computing Lab during my undergraduate study in PKU.
