Catherine Yeh

Hi, I'm Catherine! I'm a first-year computer science Ph.D. student @ Harvard University, advised by Prof. Martin Wattenberg and Prof. Fernanda Viégas in the Insight + Interaction Lab. My research interests lie at the intersection of human-AI interaction, interpretability, and visualization.

Previously, I received my B.A. in computer science + cognitive science @ Williams College. As an undergrad, I worked with Prof. Iris Howley to design an empirical framework for post-hoc explainable AI.
