Biography

Institution of Highest Degree:
University of Maryland

My research has covered a range of topics, including human-computer interaction, information visualization, bioinformatics, universal usability, security, privacy, and public policy implications of computing systems. I have published more than 25 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers and two book chapters. I am currently working on the development of highly-interactive, user-centered systems for finding and exploring biomedical datasets, with specific applications ranging from basic research data to electronic health records. Earlier efforts included NSF-funded projects in computer security in introductory computer science classes and computational thinking. In addition to my research experience in computer science education, I have taught and developed several courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels, including Introductory Computer Science, Introduction to Algorithms, Information Visualization, Advanced Web Development, and Human-Computer Interaction. I am a reviewer for several journals, including Information Visualization, ACM Transactions on Human Computer Interaction, Interacting with Computers, Risk Analysis, and Advances in Bioinformatics. I have also served on program committees for several conferences, including the IEEE Information Visualization Symposium (2007-2009), the ACM Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (2009-2010), Advanced Visual Interfaces (2010), and the Security and Privacy in Medical and Home-Care Systems Workshop (2009-2010). I have been a member of the Executive Committee of the Association of Computing Machinery's US Public Policy Committee (USACM) since 2004, and I am co-author of Research Methods in Human-Computer Interaction (Wiley, 2010).
