Research Opportunities

I am actively seeking PhD, MS, and BS students for funded research projects.

Graduate Research

Students interested in graduate studies with me have several degree programs to choose from:

I can help guide incoming students in applying to the appropriate degree program for their interests.

Our warm supportive community of researchers eagerly seeks women and minority students to promote diversity.

I have three open and funded PhD positions focused on dynamic graph/network visualization; geospatial network visualization for cybersecurity, defense, and epidemiology; data storytelling; analytic provenance; visualization for healthcare; multidimensional data visualization; and visualization perception and cognition.

PhD students who are making acceptable progress are guaranteed at least five years of full fundingSpring PhD admission is available for exceptional students.

Undergraduate Research

I am also looking for exceptional undergraduate students to work as part of dynamic research teams with graduate students. Research can be paid or unpaid for research experience. I hire students hourly or for co-ops.

Application Inquiries

I am particularly interested in students with strong programming proficiency, such as full stack web development experience, JavaScript, D3, WebGL, and Java. Students should also have strong English speaking and writing skills
