Doris Jung-Lin Lee

I am a third-year graduate student at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign working with Professor Aditya Parameswaran. My current research interest lies in interactive data analytics, visualization, database usability, and human-computer interaction. I am currently working on research problems related to visualization recommendation and query specification interfaces. I received my Bachelor's degree in physics and astrophysics from UC Berkeley in 2016.
