Research description:

My research is in the areas of human-computer interaction, visualization, and computer-supported cooperative work. I design and evaluate visualization and interaction techniques that allow people to effectively analyze data and make decisions. I am particularly interested in designing visualization techniques based on human perceptual capabilities, as well as designing for multiple co-located users (collaborative visualization).
