Hong Yi is a senior visualization researcher and developer at Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) at UNC-Chapel Hill. She is also an adjunct assistance professor in the department of computer science at NCSU. During her tenure at RENCI, she has designed and developed several visual analytics tools as a result of collaboration with researchers at NC State University and UNC-Chapel Hill. Two projects she worked on with NCSU researchers as part of RENCI@NCSU faculty engagement programs were Visual Analysis Tools for Biomolecular Structure Exploration (NCSU PI: Dr. Yaroslava Yingling, Materials Science and Engineering Department) and Advanced Analysis of Direct Numerical Simulation of Bubbly Flow Turbulence (NCSU PI: Dr. Igor Bolotnov, Nuclear Engineering Department). She received her PhD degree from the Department of Computer Science, University of Alabama in Huntsville.
