I am an assistant professor of digital media in the School of Literature, Media and Communication at Georgia Tech, where I direct the Local Data Design Lab. I teach courses in Digital Media, Computational Media, Human-Computer Interaction and Science, Technology and Society. My current research is focused on bringing together practices from data studies and data visualization.

In the past few years, I have co-organized a number of workshops focused on the use of design in the humanities and social sciences, including Humanities Data VisualizationDigitalSTS and Design and Beautiful Data 1 and Beautiful Data 2. This website hosts a variety of academic materials, including my bio, examples of past projects, and a list of publications.
