Current Research and Teaching

Shuo Niu's research focuses on human-computer interaction, computer-supported collaborative work, and human-centered data science. Niu studies the design of collaborative technologies for co-located and distributed collaborators to understand the situation by making sense of large-scale data. His research work examined the design of digital group spaces and evaluated how different groupware affect communication and integration of individual work. Research projects led by Niu investigated collaborators using social media data, interactive displays, data visualization, and machine learning approaches to gain insights, exchange information, and generate knowledge.
