Yao Ming (明遥)
I am currently a Ph.D. student in VisLab at Department of Computer Science at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. My supervisor is Prof. Huamin Qu.

I was graduated from Shenzhen Experimental High School, Xili, where I spent 3 fulfilling years with friends, funny teachers, and Delonix regia.

In 2012, I came to Tsinghua University for undergraduate study. I got my undergraduate degree majored in Civil Engineering and minored in Economics in July 2016. During these 4 years, I found my interests in the chorus, designing, and computer science.

You can get my CV here.


My current interests are Information Visualization, Visual Analytics, and Explainable Machine Learning.
