Department of Visualization
Texas A&M University
I am an Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University in the Department of Visualization. I lead the INDIE (INteractive Data and Immersive Environments) research group in the Department of Visualization at Texas A&M University. The INDIE group conducts research in areas including human-computer interaction (HCI), information visualization, virtual reality, 3D interaction, visual analytics, and educational games. I am also a faculty lead in HCI@Viz, a collective research lab at Texas A&M that covers a wide variety of HCI research areas.
Previously, I worked as a visual analytics research scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory as part of the Situation Awareness and Visual Analytics research team. I received my Ph.D in Computer Science from Virginia Tech, where I worked with Dr. Doug Bowman on immersive virtual reality research in the 3D Interaction group. My dissertation research focused on the study of how people use space and locations to help themselves understand information in virtual environments.
