My research focuses on people’s relationship with their own data, specifically at the intersection of environmental sensing, exploratory visualization, and personal privacy. I am currently working with Miriah Meyer and Jason Weise on the NIH’s PRISMS project to help “develop health monitoring systems for measuring environmental, physiological, and behavioral factors in pediatric epidemiological studies of asthma”. I just make a user interface for our participants :P
I’m a bit of an atypical CS student, and even moreso a visualization researcher. My academic background is in math and physics with some professional R&D experience as an electro-optic engineer. I came to Utah for a scientific computing PhD, but switched course to visualization in order to pursue a more collaborative and problem-driven line of research.
When I’m not computing I like to cook, build speakers, and play synthesizers.
