With the advent of the Internet, the World Wide Web,
portable computers, mobile communication devices, and
greater computing power in general, the amount of data
available to people and organizations has grown
astronomically in recent years. While one would hope that
access to this data would foster improved understanding,
insight, and decision-making, too often it leads to
confusion, bewilderment, and a sense of a missed opportunity
instead. Our research group develops ways to help people
and organizations understand data via innovative interfaces
and applications in the areas of information visualization,
visual analytics, and peripheral awareness. We ultimately
want to help people solve problems and understand the world
Our research is supported by grants from the National Science
Foundation (IIS-1717111), DARPA, Sandia National Lab, and
donations from Adobe and Microsoft.
