Hi, I'm Shaolun Ruan

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate of Computer Science at Singapore Management University, under the supervision of Professor Jiannan LI and Professor Yong WANG. My research interests include Data Visualization and Human-Computer Interaction. My work focuses on developing human-centered computing tools to address complex scientific problems, facilitating the process of explainability and data-driven decision-making.
