Title: From decision-making to communication: Data Visualisation during the pandemic

Abstract: In this talk, I will share our recent research results on developing interactive data visualisations to facilitate an engaged epidemiological model building process to inform public health policy-making, as well as empirical research that study the extent that visualisations support the understanding of complex models of disease dynamics, and a visualisation-based workshop to teach school kids about how to use data and simulations to understand disease spread. Through these examples, the talk will aim to highlight visualisation both as a human-centred data analysis methodology in an increasingly automated landscape, and as a lens to study interactions between people and data. 

Bio:Cagatay Turkay is a Professor at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies at the University of Warwick, UK and a Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute, London, UK. His research investigates the interactions between data, algorithms and people, and explores the role of interactive visualisation and other interaction mediums such as natural language at this intersection. He designs techniques and algorithms that are sensitive to their users in various decision-making scenarios involving primarily high-dimensional and spatio-temporal phenomena, and develops methods to study how people work interactively with data and computed artefacts.
