I’m a cognitive scientist interested in next-generation software. I studied computer engineering and linguistics before focusing on the psychology of software and systems.
I like to think about collaboration, visualization, and digital art & literature. I co-developed the open-source TurkGate, and I’m currently working on a text editor for electronic writers.
Recently I co-taught an MIT IAP seminar on Data Visualization (link to slides), prior to which I taught The Theory & Practice of Data Visualization at UMass Dartmouth. I co-founded DataScale, and I currently live in Cambridge, MA, where I work on product design at Tamr.
