Leslie Watkins

first-year grad student, Computer Sciences

Interests? My interests lie mainly in interdisciplinarity and cognitive science. I have particularly enjoyed learning about graphics and visualization (which is why I’m here).

Since I’m interested in visualization as a science and I don’t have a specific “domain” to apply it to, I guess I would fall somewhere near the Vis Scientist category.

Expectations? My expectation for this class is to learn about the scientific rigor applied to a field that I have previously thought of as being guided primarily by subjective principles.

Skills? I came here last semester knowing Matlab, and have since learned C++ in what could best be described as a baptism by fire.
