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.
I will try and keep this updated for you to see when I hope to be here, and what I am working on…
I expect to be here at CHI

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.
Exploring Design Opportunities for Visually Congruent Proxemics in Information Visualization: A Design Space
We explore design opportunities for varying visual complexity of information visualizations based on distance. Through considering visual congruency and proxemics interaction, we describe a design space that considers potential transitions between visualizations in relation to distance. Our design space is based on exploring prototyping and design possibilities.
We reflect on our experiences as designers of COVID-19 data visualizations working in a distributed synchronous design space during the pandemic. This is especially relevant as the pandemic posed new challenges to distributed collaboration amidst civic lockdown measures and an increased dependency on spatially distributed teamwork across almost all sectors.
The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic unveiled a strong need for advanced and informative surveillance tools.
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).
