About me

Hey there! Welcome to my page! I am Shiyao Li, a first year Computer Science and Informatics Ph.D. student at Emory University advised by Dr. Emily Wall. I’m pretty interested in the intersection field of cognitive science and data mining. Specifically, I want to further understand the underlying perceptual and cognitive activities such as cognitive bias that drive people’s varying beliefs by developing computational strategies to characterize them.

Before coming to Emory. I was a master student in the Data Science master program at Vanderbilt University. I did eye gaze data mining research with Dr. Maithilee Kunda at her AIVAS lab. I developed an interactive dashboard and Python package that enable more efficient eye gaze data visualization and more customized fixation identification method.
