Looking for a postdoc position for 2022!
I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan. I work with Professor Matthew Kay at Northwestern University.
I take a human-centered approach to communicating uncertainty and statistics with visualizations. My thesis will be about integrating visualization grammars with data analysts’ conceptual models. Through my internships at two national labs, I have applied my research interests to challenges I care about — climate change and renewable energy. I am also interested in adopting and improving open science practices.
