I am an Researcher at Microsoft Research; my work centers on information and data visualization. I'm interested in how users can make use of visualization to better make sense of their data. My projects have worked with both professional data analysts, with end-users, and with people who just happen to have had a lot of information dumped in their laps. My background is in human-computer interaction and computer-supported cooperative work.
Some of my current interests include:
- Trying to better understand and enhance User Experiences with Big Data
- Getting interesting visualizations into users' hands with the Data Visualization Apps for Office
- Building ties between academia and industry practitioners at the IEEE Vis Conference
I received my MS from the University of California, Berkeley in 2000. I received my PhD from the University of California, Irvine in 2004, exploring social network analysis of email. I joined Microsoft Research in 2004; I work with the Visualization and Interaction for Business and Entertainment (MSR-VIBE) team.
