I am a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Massachusetts (UMass), Amherst. My general research interests include Visual Analytics, Information Visualization, Interaction Design, Healthcare Informatics, Human-Computer Interaction, and User Experience.

My current research focuses on data visualization in civics, accessible and equitable data visualization  and interaction focusing on older adults, mixed-initiative visual analytics, and AR/VR.

Before joining UMass, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California San Diego, where I designed and implemented exploratory data analysis solutions for understanding HIV transmission patterns and characteristics. The main goal of this project was to enable public health providers to more effectively plan HIV prevention.

During my Ph.D., I worked under the supervision of Dr. Melanie Tory at the University of Victoria, Canada. My research was focused on facilitating collaborative visual analytics by utilizing analysis history and large interactive surfaces. I also designed and developed analytics software for wall and tabletop displays.
