Hello, I'm Fred Hohman

Iā€™m a Ph.D. student in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech advised by Polo Chau and Alex Endert.

My research applies a human-centered approach to designing and developing interactive interfaces that help people understand and explain machine learning models. I also write, design, and build explorable explanations, dynamic expositions, and interactive data visualizations that illustrate complex ideas simply and tangibly.

I have worked at Apple, Microsoft Research, NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, and Pacific Northwest National Lab.

I am a 2018 NASA Space Technology Research Fellow.
