Haojian Jin

I'm an Assistant Professor in Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI) and Department of Computer Science and Engineering (affiliate) at UC San Diego. Our research group studies Users, Sensors, and Privacy. We build new systems to protect users’ privacy from emerging big data technologies. This includes but not limit to:

  • Help developers avoid data misuse
  • Empower users to fight unfair treatment
  • Design a more transparent, fair, and accountable internet environment

I recently graduated from Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. Before my Ph.D., I ran a small startup and worked as a research engineer at Yahoo Research.

I am taking on new PhD students and interns from HDSI, CSE, ECE, CogSci, and related departments. I am especially looking for students with a background and/or interest in human-computer interaction, mobile computing, security & privacy, programming language, database, and software engineering.
