I am currently working as a Graduate Research Assistant in the Information Interfaces group at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
My work is focused on the design of systems that allow users to investigate data that is personally important to them, such as criminal activity in their neighborhood. This means a lot of time is spent doing interviews and surveys to figure out what's important for these displays before we build them. A lot of prototyping comes next, all leading to a system that doesn't crash or make people hate you for building it (generally). After that comes usability testing and evaluation, which is where we see what works and what doesn't. It's all quite a lot of fun, and somehow the world lets me do this without starving. Thanks, world!
