Hi all! I am a first year graduate student in Computer Science. I’m currently interested in graphics and artificial intelligence. My research is geared toward creating large-scale visualizations with specific focus on the visualization of aligned genomic sequences.

Since my research is vis-based, my interests in visualization are to better understand it as both an art and a science. There is a lot of really cool work currently being done in the field. I’m looking forward to getting more exposure to the wide range of visualization techniques currently in use. Generally, in terms of the visualization perspectives, I spend the bulk of my time in the Vis Scientist category in addition to giving a fair share of attention to the Designer aspect of things. From this class, I hope to get a better understanding of the Designer/Domain Scientist aspects of visualization through our class discussions and to get a better understanding of how to compose effective visualizations. I have a fair bit of programming experience in a variety of languages and have some design experience, mostly in the web domain.
