Welcome! I am Wesley Hanwen Deng. I am a Ph.D. student at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) at Carnegie Mellon University, School of Computer Science. I am co-advised by Ken Holstein (CoALA Lab) and Motahhare Eslami. I also have the fortune to work closely with Haiyi Zhu.


I previously studied Computer Science at UC Berkeley, where I did research with Niloufar Salehi and Kimiko Ryokai. I also did design with Eric Paulos

My current research interests are Human-centered Machine Learning (ML), Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency (FATE) in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and, more broadly, Human-AI Interaction. Specifically, I am designing and deploying public interactive installations to enhance public algorithmic transparency and engagement. Feel free to reach out through Email or Twitter!
