I am currently Teaching Faculty at the iSchool, UIUC and a Visiting Scholar at NCSA where I teach & research methods for efficient and engaging data visualization in technological fields. Before my current appointment I completed the National Science Foundation and the Institute of Theory and Computation Postdoctoral fellowships at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. My Ph.D. is in Astronomy & Astrophysics from University of California, Santa Cruz where I studied feedback in star clusters with numerical simulations, and later simulations of galaxy formation.

I'm also active in outreach and educational activities, particularly in the mentoring of students and development of open source visualization tools.
