Welcome!

I am an Associate Professor at NYU Tandon School of Engineering in the CSE DepartmentIn my lab we develop and study how to analyze and communicate data effectively with interactive visual interfaces.

I teach Information Visualization and Data Sensemaking to undergraduate and graduate engineering students at NYU Tandon. I also teach an online Specialization in Information Visualization for Coursera (open to anyone for free!).

I am the co-host of Data Stories (with Moritz Stefaner): a podcast and anything data and visualization. I used to write a blog called FILWD. I now write on Medium.
