Frank van Ham is a post doctoral researcher at the Visual Communications Lab in Cambridge. Frank holds an MS in Computer Science and a PhD in Information Visualization from the Eindhoven University of Technology. His PhD research focused on techniques for the interactive visualization of large graphs. This interest led him to create visualizations that provide insight into graphs with more than 50,000 nodes from such diverse application areas as social networks, software systems, and low-level representations of computer programs. He also co-created the sequoiaview disk browser (http://www.win.tue.nl/sequoiaview), which enables users to examine their hard disk usage at a glance. Frank's current work at IBM focuses on graph visualization, large-scale visualization and collaborative visualizations
