    • Prepared a talk about both the graphic + my process for the NYC Chapter of the Data Visualization Society.
    • Writeup + slides are here.
  • April

    • Experimented with audio visualization and processing in the browser using Spotify's NFPlayerJS. See demo
    • Experimented with visualizing NFGrapher's DAG representing audio transformations. See issue
  • April - June

    • Built DUQE with @round, a webapp for interactively exploring hierarchical data with cross-links and Mike Bostock's experimental "CSTree" file format using a variety of layouts. See the live demo and the "about" tab for more information

2017

  • December
    • Built a visualization/decision support tool using public opioid data: OPAT
  • September
  • May
    • SpheroTeam: Investigated ideas in "swarm robotics" using computer vision, PID control algorithms, and the Sphero toy robot. Find our code and writeup here. (#TODO: upload video clips)
    • iAudit: Implemented a tool for enabling multiple parties that can't share data (for privacy reasons) to determine how many items they have in common. This is useful when deploying applications across multiple cloud providers for reliability/performance, and for groups trying to assess the impact of data breaches. More details here. Built with William Dower and Ennan Zhai.
  • March
    • Wrote 110+ Python web scrapers to compile a dataset of academic dermatologists for this paper

  • January - May
    • Music Explorer
      • I must say that the children who visited after its installation really enjoyed the game! We even had two sisters fight over their right to play, and one was put in "time-out" in our foyer. She literally had to stand in a corner by herself to calm down after being so intensely excited to play. ~ Kelly Hill, Museum Curator
