I'm starting as an assistant professor at the University of British
Columbia in Vancouver on July 1 2002, and moving Canada around
I was a research scientist at the Compaq Systems Research Center
(formerly DEC SRC)
research lab in Palo Alto from September 2000 until May 2002.
I was in the Stanford Graphics Group from
September 1995 until June 2000, when I finished my PhD. Before that I spent four
years on the technical staff at the Geometry Center, a mathematical
visualization research group. I was an undergraduate here at Stanford
from '86 to '91. I was a summer intern at ETA Systems, the
supercomputer subsidiary of Control Data, from '86 to '88. Like most
of its peers in supercomputing, it no longer exists.
My thesis was in the area of information visualization,
specifically techniques for layout, drawing, and navigation of
large graphs and networks.
I started on visualizing the structure of
the Web in 3D hyperbolic space while I was still at the Geometry
Center, and have continued that work here at
Stanford and also at Silicon Graphics, where I have been a consultant
and a summer intern. I've also looked at showing graphs in a much more
concrete way, using a geographical representation of the MBone tunnel structure. I interned at
Microsoft Research the summer of 1998 and started on yet another graph
visualization system for linguistic queries, which I finished back at Stanford.
