📣 After 9 years at Bucknell, I moved to the Department of Information Science at CU Boulder. Please be patient as I transition my website over to my new context. If you are thinking about grad school at CU Boulder, the 2024 application deadlines have passed. However, you can still see my lab philosophy in this past year’s call.

I am an Associate Professor of Information Science at University of Colorado Boulder. My research draws on the fields of Human-Computer Interaction and Information Visualization. I believe that improving the public’s engagement, trust, and understanding of data is a critical societal challenge. My research focuses on the opportunities and barriers of both data representations and data tools when they are embedded within our public sphere.

Before CU, I was an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Bucknell University, I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Tufts University with Robert Jacob, and worked (during a recent sabbatical) as a Visiting Scientist at MIT with Arvind Satyanarayan.

Students: This semester (SP 2024), I am teaching INFO 4602: Information Visualization. We will be meeting MWF at 11:15am in CASE W262.
