I am a first year grad student in the Department of Computer Sciences. My primary interest lies in computer graphics. Specifically, I am interested in improving how people create, and communicate ideas through computer graphics. When applied to visualization, I am interested in how information can be clearly mapped into a visual that is easily understood. If I were to place myself in the triangle I would be somewhere between Vis Scientist and Designer. There are two main things that I wish to get out of the class: 1) Have a broad understanding of the visualization community and the direction it is taking 2) Learn about the tools that are used to reason about, evaluate, and design good visualization tools.
