I am a multi-disciplinary information designer, computer scientist, and visual artist, based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I work at Autodesk as a Senior Research Scientist. My research interests lie in the intersection of Information Visualization and Human–Computer Interaction, particularly in exploring how delightful visualizations can engage and support people in exploring data.
I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Calgary, under the supervision of Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale and Dr. Tony Tang. My work has received recognition in the form of scholarship awards including the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Doctoral Scholarship (NSERC PGS) and the Alberta Innovates Technology Futures Award (AITF), and I have previously collaborated with institutions such as the Canada Energy Regulator (CER), World Health Organization (WHO), and Nokia-Bell Labs.
In my spare time, I enjoy photography (film and digital), drawing and illustration, painting, online gaming, and exploring new places.
