Hi, I'm Francis!
I am a PhD Computer Science student at the University of British Columbia where I am advised by Professor Tamara Munzner. I am member of InfoVis group at UBC and the Design for People initiative at UBC. I was previously advised by Professor Jessica Hullman at the University of Washington and Northwestern University and a member of the Midwest Uncertainty Collective.
My research interests rest at the confluence of information visualization, human-computer interaction, and systems. Particularly, I’m interested in visualization of provenance data for broad uses, scientific reproducibility, software learning, and methods in HCI research.
Previusly, I've worked on visualization tools to support journalists integration of readers'
articles, and on the evaluation of visualizations to make them statistically reliable.
I enjoy rock climbing, cooking, drinking and learning about coffee, .
