Interested in Data Research?A new and exciting research lab at New York University - Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) is offering one-year research internships (open to undergraduates and graduates), PhD and PostDoc positions under the supervision of Professor Azza Abouzied. We are looking for talented and dedicated students with a strong technical computer science background to be part of an innovative, energetic, and well-funded research community.
Our ResearchMy lab works primarily on solving problems at the intersection of data and people. We design new interaction techniques that allow people to make sense of their data. Some of our projects are motivated by real applications, where we try to enable users to make sense of a particular data set such as historical data sets, transportation or behavior data sets, etc. Other projects are more general: we build tools that support data analysis, querying, collection and curation through intuitive interfaces.
My team's research method is systems-driven: we build interactive systems that embody our research ideas, we evaluate our hypotheses, and we then study the limits of our ideas usually from a theoretical perspective. Our research thus combines interface design, systems and theory.
