Dakuo Wang

A HCI Researcher and Engineer

Welcome.

Hello there. I am Dakuo Wang. I am a Ph.D Candidate in the Department of Informatics at the University of California, Irvine. I am the youngest in the Olson family. I study Human-Computer Interaction and Computer Supported Cooperative Work.

In my dissertation work, I am analyzing group collaboration using the fine-grained behavioral data traces (at millisecond and keystroke level) that people left in the cloud.

I also design data visualizations (DocuViz as a Chrome plugin, DocuViz on a server, and AuthorViz), analytic tools and other digital stuff.

I am currently looking for a job after my graduation in summer. Learn more about me or get in touch if you know any opportunities or you want to collaborate with me.
