Research

My research interests include the development, evaluation, and characterization of visualization systems and techniques from both user-driven and technique-driven perspectives. See the Publications page for papers about recent projects.

Teaching

Current Students

Former Students

Prospective Students

If you are interested in working with me as a graduate student at UBC, please see my directions on how to apply.

Jim Whitehead has some excellent advice for contacting faculty. Although some of his points are specific to UCSC (the differential cost of foreign and native students, the exact details of how to apply), most of the rest is very valid.

I have written down some policies of how I run my group.

Books

I read way too much, mostly science fiction and fantasy novels. I'll admit to reading a lot of utter trash, but I only recommend the good ones. I add books to the recommended list chronologically. I also have a perl script that collates a list by author, which includes short blurbs about some of the authors. My GoodReads page has per-book ratings (but no blurbs). It covers everything I've read for the past several years, almost all of my physical book library, plus a smattering of what I happened to remember reading in the more distant past.
