Biography

Hi! This is Yuan Li, Researcher in Computer Visualization.

My research lines in Data Mining and Computer Visualization. I am curious about explainable and user friendly visualization way for understanding results from Data Mining.

I am pursuing a Master’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering at New York University. Before that, I received my bachelor degree from School of Software Engineering at Tongji University.
