My primary research interests are in the related fields of information visualization and visual analytics. I’m also interested in human-computer interaction, particularly in the area of social networks. Outside of computer science, I have a healthy interest in mathematics, astronomy, physics, geography, science fiction, hockey, engineering, environmentalism, music, dinosaurs, shipwrecks, meteorology, statistics, soccer, … the list goes on and on.
