Curriculum Vitae: cv.pdf


I am a research computer scientist at the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute at the University of Utah. I am also Co-PI of the CDC Center of Excellence for Public Health Informatics and lead the visual analytics research and development effort. I have lead research and development teams and efforts as the leader and as senior investigation for the past 30 years. In recent years I have focus on novel visual displays and interactions an in particular on visual correlation of heterogeneous data to facilitate situational awareness. An important aspect of my work involves understanding the end-users and developing truly user-centric software. I split my time between writing software, mentoring students and leading research efforts. My work spans a wide range of application domains such as Epidemiology (early detection and investigation of infectious disease outbreaks), Biomedicine (genes and protein correlation), and network security (network intrusion detection).
