I am a Marie Curie Postdoctoral scholar with Dr. Hude Quan and Dr. Catherine Eastwood at the Centre for Health Informatics with a secondary affiliation to Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale‘s former 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 healthcare data. My dissertation research concerned understanding the benefits of using large, high-resolution displays to support this goal through interaction techniques and data visualization.

Data visualizations are often represented in public discourse as objective proof of facts. However, a visualization is only a single translation of reality, just like any other media, representation devices, or modes of representation.
In this article, we present PixelClipper, a tool built for facilitating data engagement events. PixelClipper supports conversations around visualizations in public settings through annotation and commenting capabilities. It is recognized that understanding data is important for an informed society.
Complex data visualization design projects often entail collaboration between people with different visualization-related skills. For example, many teams include both designers who create new visualization designs and developers who implement the resulting visualization software.
PADE: Supporting Collaborative Visual Analysis of Patient Administrative Systems Data with a Large Touch Display System
We present a visual analytics tool for collaboratively exploring data from patient administrative systems on large touch displays in meeting contexts. Large touch displays are becoming commercially available, but we have limited knowledge about how they might be used in such a context. We investigated this with our system, PatientAdministrativeDataExplorer (PADE).
We present a visualization that makes use of a novel highlighting and animation technique. The primary motivation behind the design of this visualization was to enable people to look at data about healthcare services, and specifically to increase their knowledge about the impact of the amount of healthcare workers per capita.
We present our preliminary results of an international survey on the practical adoption and use of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) from a visualization and visual analytics perspective. The ICD system, in different versions, is globally used for coding morbidity and mortality statistics, however, coding practices vary across countries.
We present Biomole, an interactive visualization designed to explore a data set created to support bio-inspiration design published by the Ask Nature organization. The Ask Nature data set contains a hierarchy of functions which we encode within different visual elements of Biomole; most importantly interactive data painting of functions allows people to search for functional co-occurrence.
In creating visualization for the general public, we have concerns relating to visual representations and data provenance, trust, and truth. We briefly outline the context of our work, describe our concerns and their relation to philosophy.
