I am a fifth year PhD student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Graphics Group in the Department of Computer Sciences advised by Prof. Michael Gleicher. I received a BS in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington in 2009 as part of the NASA Space Grant program and a MS in Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2011 as part of the Department of Energy-Sponsered BACTER Computational Biology program.

My research interests include graphics and visualization, human-computer interaction, computer vision and machine learning, and perceptual science. My current work focuses on focuses on perceptually-motivated visualization design, specifically exploring mechanisms and techniques to support visual comparisons of large-scale, complex data with a special focus on enhancing the scalability and interpretability of visual displays. See the Research page for more information on my current work, including links to my publications. An updated copy of my Curiculum Vitae is available here.
