Oak Ridge National Laboratory
I am a research scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the Situation Awareness and Visual Analytics team. Our team is part of the Cyberspace Sciences and Information Intelligence Research Group. My research interests include immersive virtual reality, 3D visualization, visual analytics, educational software, training systems, and human-computer interaction. In my current projects, I am studying visualization systems for the analysis of large data sets. I am investigating the use of visual representations to spatially organize evidence, track analytic provenance, and aid information coordination among multiple analysts.
I graduated with my Ph.D in Computer Science from Virginia Tech, where I worked with Dr. Doug Bowman on immersive virtual reality research as a member of 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.
My CV is available for more information about me.
