"Research interests: Human Computer Interaction
(Data Analysis & Visualization, Multimodal Interaction)"

 

I am a graduate research assistant(GRA) at the FourEyes lab and a 4th-year graduate student in Computer Science Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara.


My research interests revolve around the Human Computer Interaction(HCI) and the most attractive studies to me are Big Data Analytics, Information Retrieval and Visualization. I am also interested in Multimodal Interaction(Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition).
