Biography

I am currently a second year PhD student at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where I work with Dr. Alex Endert. One aspect of my research focuses on leveraging cognitive and perceptual principles to advance information visualization. The other aspect of my research focuses on interactive systems for data visualization and analysis.

Prior to joining Georgia Tech, I worked at the University of Arizona. In summer 2014, I was a visiting scholar at the CNS Research Center. In 2013, I was a research intern in the HCI Group at Microsoft Research, where I was working on presentation tools. I was also a research assistant in school of computing at the National University of Singapore in 2012. I worked on tangible user interfaces in the NUS-HCI lab.
