Information Interaction

Information Interaction is an emerging area of study that investigates how people perceive, use, and interact with information, building on several fields such as  human-computer interaction, visual analytics, information visualization, and computer-supported cooperative work. In this talk I am going to give an overview of my work in this field starting from  ethnographic field studies of how people work in data centers,  interacting with large-scale complex information technologies, to new approaches in visual analysis of complex multi-dimensional data, leveraging compute power for purposes of performing opportunistic statistical discovery to  guide user's information explorations.
