Hello! I am Yalong Yang.

I am a Research Fellow and also a new PhD graduate at IALab: Immersive Analytics Lab. I received my PhD from Caulfield School of Information Technology, Monash University. Tim Dwyer and Kim Marriott were my main and secondary supervisors. Bernhard Jenny, Sarah Goodwin and Caron Chen were my associated supervisors. I also collaborated with Maxime Cordeil in Immersive Analytics projects.

My research concerns many different aspects of Data Analytics, Information Visualization and Human Computer Interaction, especially the emerging research topic — Immersive Analytics which focuses on applying engaging, embodied display and interaction techniques (e.g. AR, VR, XR) for data visualization and analytics.
