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.
