How can we make rich visual analysis of structured data easier for a wider audience?
This question, and the many design, engineering and compuational challenges around it, are the driving force of my work. My solutions commonly become part of Keshif, a visual exploratory data analysis tool, built for the modern web. Human Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL) is my home for research.

Previously, I worked on high performance visual computing using GPUs, 3D terrain rendering, physical deformation simulation, and developed OpenREng (OpenRenderingEngine).
