Advisor: Pourang Irani
I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manitoba, Canada where I also received my Master’s degree in computer science in 2008 in the field of wireless sensor network security with several publications as journal articles, book chapters, and in conference proceedings. I have worked as a User Interface developer and in a team lead position at IDERS Inc., Manitoba, Canada for more than 4 years before starting my PhD in 2012.
Currently, I am working as a research assistant at the University of Manitoba’s HCI lab doing research with the focus on information visualization and visual analytics of spatio-temporal data.
