I design and build data visualization software that helps specialists make sense of complex data. I've worked with data scientists, biologists, neuroscientists, defense analysts, and physicians. The tools I've created have been used in R&D projects at the US Army Research Lab, Google X, an academic research lab, and a healthcare analytics startup.
My typical workflow involves: 1) understanding analysis needs through interviews, observations, and workshops; 2) exploring a broad space of ideas that can fulfill those needs; 3) developing the most promising ideas into tangible prototypes; and 4) refining those prototypes into hardened tools. I've built tools as modern web apps and desktop applications.
I hold a PhD in computer science, which focused on best practices for workshops in the early stages of applied visualization projects. It was based on my experiences building visualization software for neuroscientists, defense analysts, physicians, and biologists. It was advised by Miriah Meyer at the Vis Design Lab at the University of Utah.
