Steve Kasica

PhD student, news nerd

I'm currently pursuing a PhD in computer science at University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. I work as a research assistant in Tamara Munzner's InfoVis Group. I came to computer science from journalism and my interests lie at the intersection of both.

Before writing academic papers, I wrote features and news articles on issues in the American West, such as access to public lands, endurance sports, and whiskey. My byline has appear in: Outside, The Vail Daily, and The New York Times.

I also logged a few years at the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Earth Systems Research Laboratory, where I built visualizations and web applications for meterologists and science communicators.
