Hello. I'm a researcher scientist passionate about bringing together data, machine intelligence and the human experience into beautiful products that benefit humanity.
I've researched how human brains perceive 2D imagery and 3D imagery, and how perception affects data visualization. I've developed techniques to improve data visualization design using crowdsourcing, and used machine learning to build probabilistic models of the visual brain. I'm currently a Senior Computational Research Scientist at Ancestry where I investigate computational ways of connecting people to their personal histories.
I also have a personal passion for creating visual culture through art and technology and have been honored to produce beautiful interactive musical visualizations with Philip Glass, and digital tools for audio-visual creativity.
