Markelle Kelly

I am a computer science Ph.D. candidate in the DataLab group at the University of California, Irvine, advised by Dr. Padhraic Smyth. I am broadly interested in the development of user-centered tools for more interpretable and accountable machine learning; my research centers on understanding and improving human-machine interaction. I’m a member of the Steckler Center for Responsible, Ethical, and Accessible Technology, the Irvine Initiative in AI, Law, and Society, and the HPI Research Center in Machine Learning and Data Science at UCI.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in statistics from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in 2020 and my Master’s degree in computer science from UCI in 2022. I have also interned at Project Jupyter, where I was involved in the development and design of JupyterLab.
