Hi! I'm a second year PhD candidate at the Media Computing Group.

My interest lies in studying interfaces that support learning and making them more effective.


I have several topics related to information visualization and statistical analysis. If you are interested, drop me a mail with your CV and grades!


Recent and On-going Projects

Statsplorer is a software tool that allows users to do statistical analysis by interacting with visualizations. It guides the user to select appropriate statistical analysis tasks based on her research questions. It also prevents common statistical analysis mistakes and promotes understanding by collocating appropriate visualizations with statistical analysis results. (read more)
