I am interested in supervising highly creative and competent students to work on research projects that explore new visualisation techniques, interfaces or interactions that enable richer understanding of complex multi-dimensional geospatial data sets. My own research expertises explore new geospatial visualisation techniques and user-centred visualisation design methodologies for enabling our understanding of the growing complexity of large volumes of data. This research is often in collaboration with the Monash Energy Institute, where I explore data visualisation for the energy sector from residents through to control room operators and network visualisation. I am also interested in urban data visualisation, where we can better understand the complexity of urban data (the CityVis website presents a collection of the work in this space) and in exploring the many challenges of information literacy and inclusivity that are arising with the growing volume of data visualisations available.
I am open to new ideas and research topics that push the boundaries of geographical information visualisation or human-centred visualisation methodologies. Please contact me if you are interested in pursuing a research topic relating to the following research interests: Visual Analytics, Information Visualisation, Geovisualisation, User-Centred Visualisation Design, Energy Visualisation, Urban Visualisation, Movement Analytics, Uncertainty Visualisation, Cartography, Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Geodemographics.
