I am a PhD candidate in Computing and Information Systems at UNC-Charlotte.
My work is at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction, Computational Social Science, and Information Visualization.
My work consists of a lot of behavioral studies, visualizations, and quantitative/qualitative data analysis. I study how we make decisions about news on social media, and how social media impacts our lives in cities.
I'm also passionate about design! And I teach computational design at UNC-Charlotte's School of Architecture.
At the 24th International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI), I presented my work on designing Visual Analytics Systems for battling Misinformation.
Check out the paper!
At CUPUM 2019, I discuss a method to develop flow polylines using episodic geolocated tweet data and analyzing flows generated from Twitter in relation to urban space.
In this video, I discuss the different components of Urban Activity Explorer, a visual analytics for urban planning.
In this video, I discuss the different components of Verifi, a visual Analytics system for battling Misinformation.
In collaboration with Professor Dickey, we used computer vision to create baloons that would inflate or deflate based on users' location. We won the ARCC research incentive award!
