Research. My lab is part of the SFU Data Science Research Group. My lab's mission is to speed up data science. We develop innovative technologies and open-source tools for data scientists such that they can turn raw data into actionable insights in a more efficient manner. I recently won the IEEE TCDE Rising Star Award 2018 for my contributions to human-in-the-loop data analytics.

Leadership. I am currently the director of the SFU CS Professional Master's Program. Our vision is to train the next generation of technical global leaders in strategically important areas of society. We have trained over 200 professional master's students in Big Data and Visual Computing from 2014 - 2019.
I am also a founding editor-in-chief of the SFU Big Data Science Publication, which has now become one of the most popular Data Science publications on Medium.
