Research Statement

My research bridges data visualization and perception to drive the design of novel systems for analyzing large and complex datasets. I focus on expanding our knowledge of perception in order to evaluate how visualization design impacts users’ abilities to accomplish their analytical goals. Through this process, I derive quantified insight into the role of perception in interpreting visualizations by gauging how real viewers in natural environments perceive encoded information. I use this knowledge to design systems and techniques that overcome scalability and interpretability limitations in existing designs. The resulting visualizations address research problems across a variety of domains, including genomics, proteomics, biochemistry, and the humanities.
