I am a staff research scientist at Tableau Software. Previously, I worked as a principal research scientist at Nokia Research Center for 7+ years. I graduated from Northwestern University in 2005 with a Ph.D. in computer graphics.
My research interests lie at the intersection of natural language processing (NLP) and computer graphics, particularly in the area of iconography and content retargeting. My work has involved ideation, prototyping and evaluating novel user interfaces for both mobile and desktop platforms in the following main areas:
1) Data semantics, information visualization and iconography.
3) Map navigation and search, automotive interfaces.
2) Cross device and multimodal interaction.
