I am an assistant professor at Arizona State University in the School of Computing, Informatics, & Decision Systems (CIDSE), joining fall 2018. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Davis under the direction of Dr. Kwan-Liu Ma. My primary research is in the areas of data visualization and human-computer interaction (HCI).
