Focus: Data visualization tools and techniques
School of Information @ University of California, Berkeley
Given my interests in design and storytelling, datavis is a natural fit for me. With Prof. Marti Hearst, a leading researcher in the field, I learned and practiced core perceptual and design principles for effective data and information visualization, developing projects with industry-standard visualization tools such as Highcharts, Illustrator, Tableau and D3. Currently we are designing and testing a tool that implements some best practices of exploratory data analysis.
