I'm a graduate student and researcher in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University. Working in the Human-Computer Interaction Group, my research (advised by Jeffrey Heer) focuses on topics in social computing and visual analytics for social data. In addition to my work at Stanford, I've conducted research with a number of organizations, including PARC, Google, MSR, and Facebook. In 2006, I received an M.A. in Philosophy and a B.S. in Mathematics (minor in Symbolic Systems) from Stanford.
