Like most scientists, I produced the data, analyzed the data, and visualized the data. That data is becoming increasingly granular and complex, thanks to improvements in sensors and computation. The shift towards highly detailed data is also happening outside of science and I began to see that many of the methods from my scientific research were universal and could be used to analyze and visualize data from other sources. Thus began my journey into data analysis and visualization.
I have a BS in Engineering-Physics and a PhD in Materials Science. Since then, I've done research in soft matter physics at Univ. Colorado Boulder and IBM Research-Zurich. For more details, find me on Google Scholar or ResearchGate.
