I am a computer scientist and Professor of User Experience and Interaction Design with a particular fascination for human-computer interaction and human-data interaction. My goal is to create ubiquitous computing technologies that enable individuals or teams to interactively explore, experience, visualize, and make sense of complex data sets and data models.
To achieve this, I am designing, protoyping, and evaluating ubiquitous computing user interfaces with expressive data visualizations or representations. Ideally, interacting with these system feels “natural” or “intuitive” and creates meaningful human-data experiences. Increasingly, this requires integrating intelligible and explainable forms of data science and artificial intelligence into interactive systems.
Consequently, my research focuses on the intersection of human-data interaction (HDI), human-computer interaction (HCI), interaction design (IxD), information visualization (InfoVis), computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) and ubiquitous computing (UbiComp).
