I am an associate professor in the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD since August 2014. I also have positions as Director of the HCIM program, affiliate associate professor of computer science, and member of University of Maryland’s Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS). Previously, I was a faculty member in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN from 2008 to 2014. My research areas include information visualization, human-computer interaction (HCI), and visual analytics. I received my Ph.D. in December 2006 from the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. I was also a postdoctoral researcher in the Aviz group at INRIA Saclay in Paris, France from 2007 to 2008.
