I am a Marie Curie Postdoctoral scholar with Sheelagh Carpendale in her InnoVis group at the Interactions Lab at Department of Computer Science, University of Calgary. My research focuses on information visualization and human-computer interaction.

I am interested in supporting people in understanding and making sense of data. My dissertation research concerned understanding the benefits of using large, high-resolution displays to support this goal through interaction techniques and data visualization.

The Visualization View as a Toolbox

In visualization, “multiple views” refers to showing more than one visualization in the same system. We introduce the notion of toolbox views through examples from the literature, as well as our own prior work.

Analyzing Qualitative Data

Evaluation is increasingly recognized as an essential component of visualization research. However, evaluation itself is a changing research area. In particular, the many variations of qualitative research are emerging as important empirical methods. This half-day tutorial is designed for beginning to intermediate audiences.

Multiple Views in Immersive Analytics

We consider the challenges and potentials for multiple views when applied in immersive analytics. The changes in physical setup of very large and possibly multiple displays, potentially combined with smaller handheld displays that can be used for both input and display augmentation, in addition to new input technologies, challenges much of current practice in multiple views.

Objective Meaning: Presentation Mediation in an Interactive Installation

We explore the presentation technique of visual abstraction as a form of mediation to manage content generated by the public in order to maintain a respectful discourse. We identify technological and social mediation as two dimensions within the space of content mediation, and discuss different solutions based on related work in public interactive displays and art installations.
