I lean towards things at the intersection of computation and design—both visual design and design as a tool to explore and improve on how technology mediates human interactions. I primarily work as an software developer and designer with a focus on information visualization.
I currently work at Bocoup making data visualizations using open web technologies.
Prior to that I worked at the Visual Communication Lab at IBM Research, where I worked on a number of information visualization research projects. These ranged from text visualization to timelines to the behaviour of people in social networks.
Before the VCL I was a masters student in the Sociable Media Group at the MIT Media Lab. where I worked on projects that explored information visualization for everyday use and it's use as a visual language for communication and identity representation. Additionally, as part of my thesis work, I created tools to support open source style development in artist-programmer comunities of practice.
Before coming to MIT I worked at OBX Labs (an art research lab) where I worked on integrating typography and live human performance. OBX is located at Concordia University, Montreal where I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Science with a minor in Digital Image Sound and the Fine Arts (now known as Computation Art).
