Research Interests:

My research interests are in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and visualization. My current projects focus on people’s perceptions and usage of data visualization in various domains including healthcare and the media.

Recently, I have studied credibility and trust in visualization online, and examined the role of textual components in information recall and trust. I also built and evaluated visualization webtools to help clinicians and parents of young children communicate more efficiently.
