We are hiring PhDs! If you are interested in joining our visualization lab at NYU as a PhD student in the academic year 2017-2018, please send me an email with your CV and a portfolio of your projects (if you have any).
I am Assistant Professor at NYU Tandon School of Engineering in the CSE Department where I do research in Information Visualization. In my lab we develop and study interactive visual interfaces to help people make sense of data and communicate results reliably, efficiently and effectively.
I teach Information Visualization to undergraduate and graduate engineering students. I am the co-host of Data Stories: the best data visualization podcast ever. I write my ideas on data and visualization in my blog FILWD.
If you are a student who wants to work with us or if you have an interesting data problem you think we can solve together let us know. We love data problems!
