Sheelagh Carpendale is Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Calgary, where she leads the Innovations in Visualization (InnoVis) research group. Sheelagh is one of the most prominent figures in visualization research and, this week, she joins us to discuss the research taking place in her lab, as well as her innovative ideas about all sorts of information visualization. Sheelagh is renowned for taking a much more holistic view of visualization than usual; she emphasizes interaction, visualization beyond the confinements of desktop displays, and the use of design, qualitative research, and psychology. On the show we talk about the uses of sketching in data visualization, the concept of “active reading” of visualizations, and the standard data viz ideas that are holding us back.

Enjoy the show!
