I am an Associate Professor of Digital Media at Georgia Tech, with a focus on critical information design and visualization. I am the Founding Executive Director of the Interdisciplinary Media Arts Center, which fosters projects and pathways for researchers, students, and practitioners who want to make expressive use of innovative technologies.
My most recent book, All Data Are Local (MIT Press, Spring 2019), is addressed to a growing audience of creative practitioners who want to work with unfamiliar data both effectively and ethically. My research contributes to a variety of fields, such as: science, technology, and society, human-computer interaction, and design studies. I currently teach courses on information design, data visualization, and data studies. I also organize events about how to work creatively with data. Recent examples include Information+, Humanities Data Visualization, DigitalSTS and Design and Beautiful Data 1 and 2.
