Hi, I am Yao Ming (明遥). No, I am not the basketball player. I am a Ph.D. candidate at VisLab, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. My supervisor is Prof. Huamin Qu. My research interest lies in the intersection between visualization and machine learning. Specifically, I am passionate about making machine learning systems more transparent and explainable using visualization and interaction techniques.
Before joining HKUST, I got my B.S. degree majored in Civil Engineering with a minor in Economics from Tsinghua University in 2016. During my undergraduate, I explored my interests in chorus, graphic design, and computer science.
