I’m an Assistant Professor at MIT EECS/CSAIL, beginning Fall 2018. For 2017–2018, I am a Post-Doctoral Research Scientist at Google Brain. I received my PhD from the Computer Science department at Stanford University, where I worked with Jeffrey Heer and the UW Interactive Data Lab.
My research uses interactive data visualization as a petri dish to study questions in user interface toolkit design and human-computer interaction broadly. Systems I have developed have won awards at premier academic venues, and are used by Wikipedia and the Jupyter/Python data science communities.
