research overview

  • My research draws on the fields of Human-Computer Interaction and Information Visualization. I believe that improving the public’s engagement, trust, and understanding of data is a critical societal challenge. My research focuses on the opportunities and barriers of both data representations and data tools when they are embedded within our public sphere.
