Hello! I am Yalong Yang.

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at VCG: Visual Computing Group, Harvard University. Before joining Harvard University, I was a Research Fellow and a PhD student at IALab: Immersive Analytics Lab, Monash University. I received my PhD on a thesis titled "Visualising Geographically-Embedded Origin-Destination Flows: in 2D and immersive environments".


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.
