Assistant Professor

New Jersey Institute of Technology


I am an assistant professor in the Department of Data Science, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), with a joint appointment in the Department of Computer Science. Before that, I earned the Ph.D. in Computer Science from Texas A&M University, under supervision of Dr. Xia Hu. I have previously worked/interned with companies such as MSR, Adobe Research, and Intel. I also work closely with Dr. Ben Shneiderman of University of Maryland, and developed a website for Human-Centered AI.

My research interests lie within the extensive domain of trustworthy data science, with a particular emphasis on explainability, fairness, robustness, etc. Additionally, I am particularly intrigued by the intersection of trustworthy data science with large language models (LLMs).

I’m actively looking for strong and motivated students. If you are interested in working with me, please feel free to email me. Please check here for more details.
