DRIVING EXPLORATORY VISUALIZATION THROUGH PERCEPTION AND COGNITION
Danielle Albers Szafir, assistant professor of information science and affiliate professor of computer and cognitive science, University of Colorado Boulder
Danielle Albers Szafir’s research sits at the intersection of information visualization, data science, computer graphics, and cognitive science. Along with a team of fantastic students and collaborators, she looks at the relationship between cognition and visualization design. Through this process, she develops interactive visualization systems, guidelines, and techniques for exploring large, complex data. This work has inspired collaborations across a variety of domains including genomics, bioinformatics, the humanities, biochemistry, and perceptual psychology.
The Next in Science series allows early-career scientists whose creative, cross-disciplinary research is thematically linked to introduce their work to one another, to fellow scientists, and to nonspecialists from Harvard and the Greater Boston area.
