Brief Bio

I am an assistant professor in the Web Information Systems (WIS) group at TU Delft. I co-lead the Kappa research line on Crowd Computing & Human-Centered AI and co-direct the TU Delft AI Lab Design@Scale. Before, I was a machine learning scientist at Alexa Shopping, Amazon Research, based in Seattle, and a senior researcher at the eXascale Infolab, University of Fribourg - Switzerland. I received my PhD from TU Delft in 2017, MSc from TU Eindhoven in 2013, and BEng from Zhejiang University in 2011. During my master program, I also spent some time at Philips Research.

I work on human-centered computing approaches for trustworthy machine learning. The underlying assumption is that to create AI that properly serves people, it is crucial to involve humans in different stages of the machine learning lifecycle. My research contributes a new set of human-in-the-loop methods and tools that leverage human conceptual and perceptual abilities for understanding machine decisions and for guiding the decisions to better align with human values. With such efforts, my utmost goal is to transform machine learning into an engineering discipline that gives humans full control of AI such that it can be reliably and safely used in various contexts.
