In information visualization, the question is the answer. Visualizations must effectively address users' query and analysis needs; they may also be used to provide formative feedback during the users' process of discovery. I seek to explore how interactive systems employing novel visualization techniques may be used to create engaging, positive feedback loops. Specifically, I want to explore the question: how may visual analytics be used to improve learning, self-regulation, self-awareness, and communication?
My research draws from theories and research methods self-regulation in education, human computer interaction, and game theory to help users visually extract meaningful patterns from their data.
In the console video game industry I worked on PSP, PS2, PS3 and Wii projects with inspiring individuals.
My work takes many different forms. I am fascinated with the power of all storytelling mediums and often do film projects, iI addition to the work in games and television I did in previous positions.
