Current place of employment:
University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC)

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, College of Information Technology, at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC), where I am also a member of the Charlotte Visualization Center. I received both my Ph.D. (2001) and M.S. degrees from Vienna University of Technology (Vienna, Austria). Before coming to Charlotte, I worked at the VRVis Research Center and the in-silico pharmaceutical research company Inte:Ligand. My research is in Information Visualization (InfoVis) and Visual Analytics. The goal of these fields is to translate data into images that we can interact with and read to understand the underlying data.

Ziemkiewicz, Caroline and Kosara, Robert (2010): Implied dynamics in information visualization. In: Proceedings of the 2010 International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces 2010. pp. 215-222.

Information visualization is a powerful method for understanding and working with data. However, we still have an incomplete understanding of how people use visualization to think about information. We propose that people use visualization to support comprehension and reasoning by viewing abstract visual representations as physical scenes with a set of implied dynamics between objects. Inferences based on these implied dynamics are metaphorically extended to form inferences about the represented information. This view predicts that even seemingly meaningless properties of a visualization, including such minor design elements as borders, background areas, and the connectedness of parts, may affect how people perceive semantic aspects of data by suggesting different potential dynamics between data points. We present a study that supports this claim and discuss the design implications of this theory of information visualization.
