Chia-Kai Yang is a PhD student at the People and Computing Lab at the University of Zurich, supervised by Prof. Chat Wacharamanotham.
He obtained his first Diploma (M.Sc.) at the Electrical Engineering in 2003, from National Cheng-Kung University, Taiwan.
In 2016, he received his second Diploma (M.Sc.) at the Human Technology Interaction (HTI) from Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands.
From 2010-2014, he was a senior Design for Testability (DFT) engineer in Nvidia. Prior to that, he worked as an Application-Specific Integrated-Circuit (ASIC) consultant in Faraday Technology (2008-2009) and digital IC designer in Elan Microelectronics (2003-2008).
Originated from the fusion of hardware design and HTI expertise, he got strong interest in trend prediction, process mining, visual analytics, statistical data analysis, and the integration of high-level knowledge with low-level machine data. His research topic focuses on building a better statistical tool, e.g., improving user interfaces of statistical tools, creating new interactive systems to help users conducting statistical analysis, learning statistics, and consuming statistical reports.
