The D2 Lab stands for Data Semantics & Human Data Interaction, hence D2 or Data2. We strive to accelerate research in intelligent systems and facilitate human decision-making by developing novel semantic-oriented technologies and interactive data analytics. Our goal is to help people make sense of complex datasets, through data interactions in semantically meaningful ways to expose the path from data to information, to knowledge, and to wisdom in collective intelligence.
The D2 Lab has openings every semester and welcomes applications from all who share interests in the aforementioned research area. In particular, applications from underrepresented student groups - including but are not limited to, women, minorities, persons with disabilities, and first-generation college students - are strongly encouraged. Strong programming and time management skills highly desired. To apply, email Dr. Fu with a cover letter explaining why you may be a good fit for the D2 Lab and your unofficial transcript.
Interactive VisualizationDesign, development, and evaluations of i) interactive visual representations of domain specific datasets, and ii) visual analytics to facilitate human decision-making.
Applied Eye TrackingApplications of eye tracking in a wide range of domains centered on gaze analytics and usablity evaluation.
Evaluation StandardsMethodology innovation in evaluation techniques applied in interactive computing systems.
