Prof. Stasko is Director of the Information Interfaces Research Group whose mission is to help people take advantage of information to enrich their lives. As the amount of data available to people and organizations has skyrocketed over the past 10-20 years, largely fueled by the growth of the internet, insufficient methods for people to benefit from this flood of data have been developed. A central focus of many of the group's projects is the creation of information visualization and visual analytics tools to help people explore, analyze, and understand large data sets. In particular, they are creating visual analytics systems to help people with "sense-making" activities on data sets such as large document collections. The group also has developed a number of techniques and systems for providing people with peripheral awareness of useful information. Follow the link to the research group in order to visit pages with more details on these projects.
John is a faculty investigator in the Dept. of Homeland Security's VACCINE Center of Excellence (GT page) focusing on developing visual analytics technologies and solutions for grand challenge problems in homeland security, and in the NSF FODAVA Center exploring the foundations of data analysis and visual analytics. He is also an affiliated faculty member in the Tennenbaum Institute at Georgia Tech.
