I am Yifan Zhang (εΌ  艺凑). I am currently a ph.D. student at SoC, National University of Singapore, working in the UbiComp Lab under the supervision of Prof. Brian Lim.
My research interests include Explainable Artificial Intelligence and Human-Computer Interaction.
Specifically, I aim to improve the interpretability of complex machine-learning models using human-centered principles. By leveraging natural language explanations, clear visualizations, and intuitive interactions, I strive to enhance interpretability and reduce cognitive overload.
