Haojian Jin


I am a Ph.D. student in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Jason Hong and Swarun Kumar. My research is about building systems at the intersection of Big Data, Privacy & Security and Human-Computer Interaction, focusing primarily on two paradoxical questions:

  • How can we use rich sensor data to enable new intelligent automation?
  • How can we protect people from the seemingly innocuous automation?

Before coming to CMU, I had been a full-time researcher at Yahoo Research for 3 years. At Yahoo, I developed key algorithms in visual search, cryptography, speech recognition and large-scale data mining, resulting 10+ US patents. I also have interned at Microsoft Research Asia (2-time intern), Bosch Research (2-time intern), and Chinese Academy of Science (summer visiting student).
