Lingyun YuXi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, China

Dr. Lingyun Yu is an assistant professor in the Department of Computing (CPT) at the Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU).

She obtained her PhD on Scientific Visualization and Interaction Techniques at the University of Groningen in 2013. After that, she worked as a Lecturer and Associate Professor in Hangzhou Dianzi University, from 2014 to 2017. She worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Groningen and the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) from 2016 to 2019.

Her research focuses on interactive scientific visualization, human-computer interaction and visual storytelling methods, in particular, interacting with scientific visualizations using 3D interaction techniques. She is specifically interested in 3D interaction techniques and HCI techniques through which users can fluidly express their intention to data exploration and explanation.

Pourang IraniUniversity of British Columbia, Canada

I am a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia, located at the Okanagan campus, and Canada Research Chair in Ubiquitous Analytics. My research lies broadly in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction and Information Visualization. More specifically, our team is concentrating on designing and studying novel interactive systems for sensemaking "anywhere" and "anytime". For advancing this work we rely on mixed reality (MR) and wearable technologies for developing novel prototypes of visual interfaces and devices. I am also the Principal Invesitigator on an NSERC CREATE grant on Visual and Automated Disease Analytics. The aim of the VADA program is to train the next generation data scientists with a focus on health data analytics.
