Welcome! I am Wesley Deng. I am a second-year 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 and Motahhare Eslami. Before CMU, I studied Computer Science at UC Berkeley, where I conducted research in Human-AI Interaction and Design with Niloufar Salehi and Kimiko Ryokai.
My current research interests are Human-AI Interaction, Algorithmic Fairness, Accountability & Transparency, and Social Computing. I study and build tools and processes to better support AI practitioners and researchers in building more responsible AI on the ground. My current research focuses on (a) engaging end users in effectively providing feedback to improve the development and evaluation of AI systems, and (b) supporting AI researchers and practitioners in assessing the real-world downstream impact of their AI design and development.
